"cant we all just get along?" Honestly, no. Most days my commute feels like a war. Sure I pick the busiest streets to ride on, but they are the most direct / fastest route to my destination and the flattest. I average at least 2 major problems (something that could have jeopardized my safety) each way, so 4 a day. I have never been hit, but have had MANY close calls, even though I follow the law to the letter.
