top 5 commute scares

26 April 2008, 10:17 am
  1. Road hazards that don’t affect 4-wheeled traffic
    Loose gravel is bad. So are vertical discontinuities parallel to the road.
  2. Other bikes where I don’t expect them
    Riding against traffic or failing to obey traffic signals/yield right-of-way
  3. Vehicles turning left across my path when I have the right-of-way
    Vehicles nudging into the intersection are also scary; I can’t tell if they see me and/or intend to yield
  4. Vehicles moving into or across my lane without warning
    Traffic swerving around stopped vehicles without signaling is bad. Traffic turning right across the bike lane without signaling is worse.
  5. Car doors
