MY wife and I were riding on Saturday, Mothers Day ride she set the route, on a rural-ish road. This road has a large smooth shoulder for most of the time we are on it. We approached an intersection where we were going to turn left. Just before the intersection there was an SUV parked on the side of the road. At the relative slow speed of a bicycle, we go a good look at it and could see the blue and red lights behind the tinted windows. Yup, John Q. Law.
My wife checks behind us, no cars in sight, singles the left turn, and we proceeded to make the turn. Before we complete the turn, I'm still on the right side of the yellow lines, she is just over, a car comes around the bend, and passed us on the right. I didnít really feel like I was in danger, but he could have slowed a bit.
Remember the other car with the blue and red lights? He also though the car, that passed us on the right, may have been going a bit too fast. I heard the engine rev so I turned my head to look, and saw the flashing blue and red lights speed after the car.
The rest of our ride was pleasant and uneventful.
