Interesting ride to work this morning. Riding out of the roundabout from North Mesa in the inside lane of Diamond, I was checking to see if I could merge over into the bike lane as there was a car coming in from Barranca in the outside lane and that often results in me being overtaken on my right. What I do is look over my right shoulder and either wait to be overtaken or negotiate crossing the lane.
So while gauging that situation, the lady in the small black sedan following behind me
from North Mesa with the Obama bumper sticker in her back window got
impatient and went over the DOUBLE set of double yellow lines to pass me
in the oncoming lane rather than wait five
seconds. And we wonder why motorists kill people.
I guess that “change we
can believe in” doesn’t include YOUR changing to a more responsible driver, eh, love?
