he was wrong, but didnt want to face it, so he blamed someone else. sounds familiar.

myabe consider taking the 'car' lane at lights, that way no ambiguity, you can see them, they can see you.

it was a stop sign right by my house and there's a bike lane. i don't know what the actual rules are in that situation wrt right of way, but i usually sit back a bit and let the car make the turn. that's the 2nd incident that will stick in my mind of someone getting really worked up.

I dont know what the rules are either, and obviously its his responsibility to make sure a cyclist is not in his turning path, but in the interest of self-preservation, going out into the car lane for the intersection might still be a good idea. of course, then somebody would be angry because you're not in the bike lane.

i suspect the frequency of the latter to be greater than the frequency of the former. i'll stay with the bike lane unless it becomes a regular thing. i *am* now extra careful around jeeps.
