    I did not know this...

    The following was taken from California Driver Handbook

    When passing a bicyclist, pass on the left. If you are in a narrow traffic lane, wait until the traffic clears in the opposite lane before passing a bicyclist. Do not squeeze past the bicyclist.
    RIGHT WRONG


    If I get a dollar for every car that "squeeze" past me on the road, I would have enough money to buy this

    most people don't know the laws, just speed limits to avoid getting caught.

    Funny, those two pictures could have their captions reversed in the California Cyclists Handbook...if there were such a thing.

    Check out this article:

    "The survey of drivers from 16 years old to 60-plus, showed one of every six licensed drivers would fail a written state drivers test if taken today. Drivers 35 years old and up were most likely to pass, the survey indicated."

    Survey Results

    It's pretty clear the driver yelled out "ON YOUR LEFT" nice and clear. The person on the bike, being more used to MUPs, looked over his shoulder and is pulling the bike with him.

    Sad but true. I get buzzed far fewer times when I'm somewhere around the middle of the lane than on the right.
