Dimensio: csi_yellowknife: Another MSP person as well as a biker. Every time I'm at a corner, I watch drivers eye me like they're watching their insurance premiums flash before their eyes. I don't blame them, even if I stop for them it doesn't mean anyone else will./quick guide: No helmet, over 25, wearing street clothes on cheap-looking bike = They'll stop. Helmet, jeans/T-Shirt = They're going to at least look. Helmet, skinsuit, matching fannypack = not even going to try.I am over the age of thirty; when cycling, I wear jeans, a t-shirt, a helmet and a black fanny pack. I paid more than $500 for my bicycle. I stop at all stop signs and red lights and at yeild signs when appropriate.I did recently obtain an air horn, for use should I encounter another driver who chooses to ignore a stop sign. Again./My .45 is problably louder, but using that as a warning is probably not a good idea.//I ignore sop, yeld and one vay signs.
People_are_Idiots: I would have slowed and try to -barely- tap his bike.
