Mallet, you have it precisely backwards.
I biked for 19 years. And only got into trouble with vehicles 3 times in all that.
1. I obeyed the rules of the road.
2. I remembered that others on the road had the same rights I did.
3. I exercised basic courtesy toward others on the road.
It’s amazing how those three things ELIMINATE all friction between bicyclists and drivers.
Shame on you for blaming the drivers when it’s 100% the bicyclists’ fault.
