The motto is "share the road!" As a full time cyclist who rides 4,000 to 5,000 miles a year, I feel like I have the experience to talk about this topic. 98% of the drivers are courteous to cyclists, and visa versa. It's the 2% of drivers and cyclists that are the problem. For some reason, some drivers feel like they have to intimadate cyclists in the roadway. They honk their horns for no reason, try pulling their car/truck as close as possble to the cyclist when passing them, or unnecesarily speed up to turn in front of the cyclist coming up to an intersection and turn in front of them. The other scary time is when the cyclist is going up a small bridge on the island and there is no bike lane to use. Instead of the driver waiting 10-15 seconds for the cyclists to safely go up the bridge, they tailgate, cut off, and/or cross the double yellow line and go into on coming traffic. This is a recipe for a serious accident! Cyclists can be a problem too. The ones who ride and jog going the wrong direction (against traffic) in the bike lanes, or weave all over the road going 2 miles an hour on side streets, or who fail to watch out for cars pulling out of driveways. Why can't we all share the roads? Just do the right thing, slow down when passing a cyclists, obey the 3 foot move over rule!!, and keep an eye out for everyone as you need to watch out for other cars, trucks, motorcycles, runners, people walking, and cyclists.
