Cyclists and Drivers: Maybe its Not a War

Nice BBC News article. Despite the drivers I have encountered who pass dangerously closely,  yell or beep just because I am on the road, or almost cause a right hook collision,  peaceable road sharing is possible. I know that because I’ve had positive experiences too, and plenty of them. Drivers waiting to allow me to turn left, patiently slowing down behind me when there’s no way to pass, and checking before opening the doors of their parked cars. Tweets “joking” about running cyclists over notwithstanding, this article suggests that before long cyclists and motor vehicle drivers will all enjoy safer travels.
