You can’t ALWAYS blame the driver. these cyclists think that they own the streets are are very reckless. I can’t tell you how many close calls I’ve had. Then they stare you down as if it’s your fault. We have bike lanes for a reason and they should stay in their lanes and should obey all traffic laws as drivers, but they don’t.
