The objections sound very much like the original case brought against Daniel Cadden in the UK, who was charged with riding in such a way as to "force" drivers to cross the centreline in order to pass him. He was originally found guilty of riding improperly by a Judge Morgan ( who also absolved a police driver from any offence when he drove at speeds of up to 80mph in a 30 area and 150mph on a 70pmh limit motorway).
Fortunately, Daniel's appeal, funded in large part by a CTC appeal fund, was successful, andwe've all breathed a sigh of relief at sanity prevailing in the UK.
I do feel sorry for poor, helpless truck drivers, tho'. Fancy being forced to drive head on into approaching traffic. Perhaps US trucks are fixies and don't have front brakes.
