"Surely the police can identify the driver. How is this not possible? BTW, to my best knowledge there is a $1,000 (yes, ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS) fine on the motorist for "Open Door in Traffic". Steve"

"I see this every single day commuting in the city. Many are Divvyists, but many are not. It is so rare that I see a cyclist waiting for the green when cars are present that I'm tempted to compliment him or her. I consider this to be the…"

"Was the driver ticketed for opening the door into traffic? From Municipal Codes of Chicago (MCC): 9-80-035  Opening and closing vehicle doors.    No person shall open the door of a vehicle on the side available to moving traffic…"

"Giving Porsche drivers a bad name! Though, in my own experience, motorists displaying behavior inconsiderate of cyclists are usually driving pricey cars... Steve"

"I don't know. I didn't have anyone honk at me, but I didn't exactly feel the love either. Some clown in a BMW sports car was using the bike lane on Taylor (east of the expressway) as his personal right turn lane... I mean he was…"

"Hi, Tom, Well, this was the bike lane (left) side. I have come to be accustomed to the left-side position, though it's a bit awkward with the left-side rear-view mirror. I continue across Halsted on the left, in the middle of the lane.…"

"I was riding east on the Jackson bike lane this evening. A block or so west of Halstead a person was standing at the entrance to the crosswalk. I stopped. The person was talking on a cell phone and ignored me. Just as I gave up and started across…"

"Mike (and others), Have you considered an air horn (EXAMPLE)? I have one of these; it's louder than sh!t and has come in very handy on several occasions. Good examples are cars starting to turn right, crossing my path, and merging into my lane…"

"I see this all the time. Even police cars do it. However, according to the police training videos, a car temporarily double-parked on a street with a bike lane is not supposed to be in the actual lane. What's more, a passenger opening the…"
