The most dangerous portion of my commute is a short stretch of on-ramps and off-ramps. I'm interested in seeing, if you encountered them, what you would do.
This is the spot: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=weymou...01563&t=k&z=18
I go either direction (to and from work), but it's busiest in the afternoon when I'm heading northbound (from the bottom to the top of the map). What I've been doing, which has worked but I'm always looking to be safer, has been to ride on the shoulder (it's nice quality) up to a bit before the onramp. If you look furthur down on the map, you'll see a big intersection. It's all downhill from that intersection to the on-ramp. As I approach it, I put my hand out, palm facing backwards in a "Don't pass" type of gesture and move out into the lane. Once I get free from the ramp I move back onto the shoulder. I do it for the next onramp you see as well.
If you were to encounter this, what would your course of action be?
