So I was riding home from the monthly Pathways Committee meeting (township group responsible for installing MUPs), and was in the wide shoulder of a busy road (40mph limit) around rush hour. Lots of cars passing, but being safe about it.
I'm doing about 12mph up a hill approaching a cross street and a car passes me and then puts her turn signal on to turn right. She should have waited, but whatever, I slow down to let her turn.
She starts her turn and then stops, blocking both the shoulder and the lane and causing me to almost stop and traffic behind to completely stop. I motion to her to keep going and shout, "Go ahead". She then completes her turn and I continue going.
Did she have a sudden attack of conscience and decide to let me go first? Was she on crack? Did she not see me at all until her turn?
