    No wonder she went through the gates. They were on the wrong side of the road.

    That wasn`t a near miss... that was a near hit! If she got ran over, it would be a near miss: "Oh look, he nearly missed." (Thank you, George Carlin. You are missed.)

    Actually, it would be a near miss if it barely nicked her. I think that might have been the case here.

    Cyclists - at least in the UK - always charge through red lights at pedestrian crossings: she obviously thought that those lights didn`t apply to her either. Serves you right. lady.

    Cyclists in Mississippi are just as retarded. They travel on the wrong side of the road (against the traffic as if they are a pedestrian) and they hardly ever obey traffic signals.

    According to Mississippi law, a bicycle is subject to the same traffic laws as a motorized vehicle.

    Indeed Rob they are.

    Sadly most motorists seem oblivious of the laws. Here in DE its the same, Cyclists are traffic and expected to ride the the right of the roadway. Very specific there. I ride just on the right side of the white line on the right (I know I`m actually meant to ride the the left side of that line but it gives traffic a little more room to pass me)

    However the amount of motorists that wont give me 1 meter on passing, or worse still honk and yell at me for not being all the way over on the right (ie on the hard shoulder) is sad.

    I`m not meant to ride on the hard shoulder idiots .. your supposed to respect my right to the road, I only ride on the right side of the roadways line because fools pass me with 3" clearance if I don`t !!!

    That`s almost as crazy as taxis overtaking someone turning right on the right.

    Portland is a cycle town so I always drive mindful of the bikers. However, I constantly see bike riders flaunt road rules and safety. Darwin at work, I`m afraid.

    I commute every day on my bike. No I don`t wait for every light. I pause and look, if no one is coming I`m going across. Unless it`s a major intersection, cars come up too fast to be sure I`ll make it. Stop signs? This is California, cars do rolling stops so you know my bike doesn`t come to a complete halt.

    As for using a left lane for a left turn, that is what the cops recommend now. Used to be cross, wait on the other side, cross again.

    I HATE cyclists that ride side-to-side and force cars over onto the wrong side to pass them. Douchebags!

    Then she apparently decided not to continue on her original course. Return home to change drawers?

    "The driver was forced to apply the emergency brake." Yeah, like that would have been a big help either way. 8-\
