Very dangerous? I don't know. I see what looks like a well maintained parallel path that is separate from the main roadway. That's where I would have been riding. In any case the "bike lane" while not up to the same standard as either of the vehicle lanes would have been fine with 32mm clinchers and bigger. The driver was impaired. That is what caused the ̶a̶c̶c̶i̶d̶e̶n̶t̶ crash. That doesn't happen every minute of the day. All that said, I'm glad I chose Portland, OR as a place to live. It may not have those amazing mountains, but it does have Mt. Hood (when you can see it), and if/when a driver decides to go off script they have to contend with not one, but a half dozen or more Millenials on a wide variety of the bicycle builders art. Keeps them honest for the most part.
