Do drivers in Bermuda actually know what that yellow thing on the tarmac is? I sometimes doubt it. Riding my pedal bike over the weekend enabled me to see some of this disregard up-close & in slow(er) motion.
Almost every corner I took, the oncoming 4 Wheeler was WAY over the line … there were a few which came closer to me during the ride than those in my own lane! The worst offenders were the Taxis – in particular those really wide ones; can’t remember the make & model, but you know the ones.
Something that also became apparent is that there are 2 schools of thought when passing pedal bikes:
1) Those drivers who cannot pass WITHOUT all 4 wheels going the other side of the line
– and –
2) Those who try to pass as close as possible to the bike.
Either way, my little titanium-tipped & textured Bull Horns attached to my handlebars are capable of making some really cool scratches in auto paint!!
