Main St

- 3 cars in a row passed me with inches to spare, speeding; occupants of last car shouting out window

Antisocial behavior at its mindless finest, like trampling someone at WalMart to get ahead in line. This street had two narrow lanes plus parked cars. You could have waited a few seconds and used the left lane. Was it worth those few seconds to potentially kill someone?

Despite the "Complete Streets" policy, they rebuilt this stretch of Main Street without bike lanes. They found room for a flowerbed down the middle, though.

In case you skipped drivers ed, when there's no marked bike lane the rightmost travel lane becomes the bike lane, and if it's too narrow for both vehicles (15 feet or so) you are required to change lanes completely to pass. Plus, then you won't casually kill someone.
