    Somehow when I read bike commuter, that is exactly the guy I pictured.

    Nice win. I have similar situations but have never been told to move over. We don't have a lot of deputies with this kind of time on their hands. The lanes don't fit a dumptruck centerline to edge, let alone a cyclist and a Smart car. Crowded by the odd disgruntled motorist, yes but not as badly as the accidental close passes if I ride close to the edge. My experience matches his: taking the lane is safer in certain circumstances. Excellent that the judge sees that safety supersedes law. I also look a lot like him but not quite that lean, and a bit grayer.

    I'm a county north of him, and get the same crap all the time. Luckily, I haven't been ticketed (yet).
