So I was coming up to a stop sign which a police officer stopped waiting to make a right turn. Everytime I come to this sign I go on the inside of the stopped cars and make my right inside of them. I don't really think about it. So, this time I ride past the cop on the right and turn inside of him. Still not thinking about it. About 50 feet on he catches up to me and tells me to pull over (I had never been pulled over on a bike before). He informs me that I was nearly t-boned. I am confused. I look around searching for the guy that nearly hit me. He gets frustrated, and says "didn't you see me turning". To which I responded "yes". He then makes some insinuation that I was wearing headphones...which was clearly untrue and that I nearly died.
I am not sure what to say at this point, seeing as that he really was no where even close to hitting me. So I revert to my typical mode of communicating with police officers and just start apologizing and agreeing with everything he says.
It seemed to work out. The moral is, if I am not going to obey traffic signs, its probably in my best interest to be sure that officers of the law are not the ones I am passing.
