[Cyclelicious] New comment on Encounter with a Motorist.

John A. Ardelli has left a new comment on your post "Encounter with a Motorist":

Paul, as far as putting traffic between me and him in this instance, there was no opportunity to. The road from the trestle on, including following my turn onto Westmount, is only two lanes. There is no place for me to go that would put someone between me and him.

Jack, bike lanes only complicate an already elegant system that allows users of all vehicles to share the road without conflict, and most are designed badly, encouraging cyclists into dangerous practices. It's easier, cheaper and safer to educate (cyclists and motorists alike) people in how bicycles and motor vehicles should interact with each other when out on the road.
