The Polite Driver Problem

Yes, it has happened to me.

The driver on the main road with the right of way sees me waiting at the intersection and stops to let me go.  What do I do? If I go, will I be hit by a frustrated driver who didn’t see me? If I don’t will I be forced into a Marx Brother’s routine of “You first. No, you.” Neither serves either of us.

The Bike Nazi takes the occasion of a letter to the editor to address the issue again. And he makes the point that cyclists must follow the rules of the road. We’re probably better off not accepting such courtesies.–Corrie

There’s a letter on the Idaho Statesman website today, that got my interest.

Polite drivers might get cyclists killed
