I cycle to and from work in Lititz each weekday. Normally I have no problems from buses or other vehicles on the road, but this morning was different. Bus 181 made some close passes of me on PA-501 approaching Lititz, well within the 4-foot distance required by PA law. It happened twice between 8:00 and 8:20 in the area of Kissel Hill.
Normally I'm pretty forgiving, but as this road has a center turn lane, it is inexcusable for the bus driver to not have moved over farther to give a safe distance when passing. I am also careful to be as visible as possible, wearing a bright yellow reflective vest, and this morning had a rear blinky light, a headlight, and a blinky wheel light in operation due to the gray, foggy conditions. It is unlikely that he/she did not see me.
I am sure the driver wasn't doing this vindictively, but may have thought he/she was giving me enough space. Please let him/her know that it was not.
