my town just put a bike lane in on one of the major throughfares. There are cars traveling the road, cars parked on the side and yes you guessed it the bike lane is in the middle. So i am riding down the bike lane yesterday passing cars in the travel lane because of a red light, when bam someone turns into a driveway from the travel lane cutting me off totally. bike and rider go flying throught the air and scrape along the pavement.

I picked myself up...no major damage...grab the bike spin the wheels look at handlebars all seems okay. The driver who cut me off is apologetic asking me if i'm okay, if my bike is okay but then a older lady comes out of a building walks up to her car and says "did you scratch or dent my car...." i didnt hear the rest because i got on my bike and rode off before i said or did anything stupid. i was hot....

just another victim of a car and driver.
