On a recent trip out of the city we're on a highway that is heavily travelled by both vehicles and cyclists. We're in a long line of traffic following 'an old man with a hat' who's driving a honking big motorhome. And then the inevitable happens....he wheels into the shoulder like it's his own personal lane to let the faster traffic pass. I cringe everytime I see some idiot do this....and it's always on an uphill or approaching a corner.
So this gets me to thinking....if the driver of the motorhome had ever been a cyclist, he would never have contemplated driving in the shoulder. Or would he?
Does being a cyclist make you a better driver?
