I've been having great success for the past seven months or so road riding according to all the traffic laws. But there's this one situation that I can't figure out.
There's a T intersection. I'm coming across the T and want to turn left, and there's a car coming up the verticle section, and he also wants to turn left. Only the car has a stop sign. Normally I should have the right of way, however:
1. SO many drivers kind of start their left turn as they stop, forcing me into an unnaturally large turn radius
2. Since I have to slow to turn, and also have to go so wide to turn, the driver is unsure of whether I am going straight, or if I am slowing to let them out. It's not good.
3. Also, I prefer to slow with my left brake, but I need that hand to signal the turn - kind of a pain.
How do you safely handle this situation? Should I stop and let the car out first?
