My city prides itself in being bike friendly, but sometimes things are not thought out as well as they should be. They have installed push buttons on the curb that a cylist can push to activate the lights to cross the intersection. Because of this the inductive sensors do not (and are not required to be) activated by a bike.
These intersections mostly have a left turn, straight and right turn lane. The straight and right turn lane are not separated by a line, it is just one wide lane with the inductive sensor on the left side so right turning cars do not activate it.
So when I approach these intersections if a left turning or straight going car is already there (which is rare) I just get in line. If not cars or right turning I ride up to curb side push button, press it then get in straight or left turn lane.
But because of traffic flow there is usually a line of right turning cars and seldom others. So to press the bike button I need to squeeze between the right turning cars and the curb to get up to the push button then make hand signals to cross between line of cars to get into straight or left turn lane.
Yesterday as I was slowly squeezing between right turning cars and curb some jerk in a large truck decided he didn't want me passing on his right and pulled right as I was approaching so his wheel touched the curb. I almost hit him. I had similar previous instances of having to squeeze between cars and curb, but never been blocked. He probably thought he was being safe so as not to make a right turn into me going straight. But of course am only there to press the button and afterward go to the straight lane to go straight.
I've notified the city of this issue, but since all the infrastructure is there I am not hopeful this would be fixed.
