So there I was Saturday, riding west on Main Street at about 14 mph, when this white pick-up also heading west passed me, then cut right in front of my bike and turned left, forcing me to brake hard to avoid splattering myself against the side of the pickup. I passed the p/u a few blocks on, at Church's Chicken, and nearly went over to start a fight.
That's the third time it's happened in the last couple of months. The other times were at the intersection of Glenna Goodacre and University, when students in cars alongside my bike have turned left while I was trying to go straight.
The safest course for a cyclist is to "take the lane," getting out in the middle so that a car intending to turn right can't get in the lane alongside you. An aggressive and possibly illegal course of action.
