"I see this when I'm northbound on Clark at Ridge. If I don't have traffic behind me, I'll move to the centerline and hook around behind the last lefty to continue on. If I'm the only traffic approaching an intersection I'll…"

"Yup.  This is my biggest fear when I cross Brywn Mawr while riding on Broadway.  And there's often traffic stacked up to go east on Bryn Mawr to LSD, and drivers will often block the intersection as they make the left. I just slow way…"

"Though one should not admit this, 3 drinks and a ride is one of my most favourite things on the whole planet. A mild summer day, a couple 12 oz arm curls and really, its as close as you can get to gently flying."

"This behavior is true of cyclists as well as pedestrians. Experience makes you aware. Spare us yet another cutesy name. "

David P. replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion Lemming Left Cross
"One driver piggybacking their judgment onto that of the driver in front of them is quite common once you're aware of it! Watching out for it is just one part of driving (car) or riding (bicycle) defensively. "

Jeff Schneider replied to Dean Bekken's discussion News this AM that Chicago is to consider allowing cyclists 65 and older to ride on sidewalks, as kids 12 and under are allowed to do.
"A better idea would be to identify streets where cycling in the traffic lanes is dangerous, and mark one side of the sidewalk as a cycle path, as they do in Germany.  It's not my favorite kind of cycle path, but it's better than…"

Jeff Schneider replied to V W's discussion frustrations that non bikers won't understand

Tricolor replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion Lemming Left Cross
"Sounds like a critical mass of people turning left. I can't say I see much of this in the US, though, except at the tail end of a green signal where the lights aren't timed properly for the volume of traffic turning."
