I was out riding today and came to a 4-way stop intersection. There were two cars ahead of me in the lane with their right turn signals on. Since there was no bike lane and I am going straight, not turning, I get in line behind car #2.
The first car turns and car #2 moves up to the line and doesn't go. I look up and see the passenger in the side mirror motioning me to go ahead of them. I shake my head no. There is cross traffic and car #2 is a boxy Scion that would pretty much hide me from the cross traffic until I got into the intersection. The passenger motions again, and I say "Just go!". The driver then guns the car around the corner and honks her horn at me.
This type of thing has happened to me on several occasions. I know the drivers think they're being nice, but in reality they make things more dangerous for the cyclist. That driver now probably has a bad feeling about cyclists, since I didn't appreciate her being "nice".
Anyone else have this happen?
