    Actually, I just realized that you're saying you call "to your left". That sounds an awful lot like "move to your left", and seems like pretty much the worst possible thing to be yelling.

    I will be sure to follow up and point out that no other jurisdiction needed to do this, and that I'm not aware of any safety issues resulting.

    Another thought is that your signal isn't as audible as you think it is, and he was actually upset about an unsignaled (and unsafe?) pass. Still no reason to be a jackhole about it.

    Using a bell is obviously superior, but that's no reason to be a jackhole if someone does it wrong.

    Expecting VDOT not to prioritize cars is like expecting the scorpion not to sting the frog. The DDI is pedestrian-unfriendly, but we can probably still get something that's an improvement over the...

    I think you need to go back and forth between the two pictures in front of the t-mobile store. It's actually kinda funny.

    That's huge. Yes it sucks that it can't be more direct, but there seemed to be zero appetite at VDOT to even consider something like the custis along the 66 ROW outside the beltway. To get anything...

    Sounds like you maybe need more light on the bike. If you get a helmet mounted one you can use a fairly wide beam to illuminate wherever you are looking, but still easily turn it away from traffic.

    I disagree. They would not be continually in the lane. They go back and forth, and spend a good bit of time either at the kiosk or in the van, and people would be able to pass at those times. The...

    If it's too dangerous to move one hand from one brake lever to ring the bell, you should probably just slow down rather than worrying about signaling.

    FWIW, I don't ever bother signalling if I'm...

    Always a bell. Yelling at people is stupid and counterproductive. Either they get annoyed, or they can't hear and turn around to see what's going on, or they jump and move left.

    Do use the bell...

    Yup, this isn't just whining, it really was a ridiculous and stupendously stupid move. There were actually two groups of cones like that, the picture shows only one of them. As I wrote above, can you...
