This is the first entry in a new category called “Pet Peeves”.
Since I started riding seriously there are some behaviors I’ve encountered that really annoy me.
First on the list … drivers that stop in the middle of an intersection to let a bike rider cross the street.
I was listening to WBEZ this morning and the traffic report came on … The reporter indicated that a particular road was very icy, but the city was sending out a salt truck to “make it better”.
Immediately the Beatles song “Hey Jude” popped into my head with slightly altered lyrics …
“… take a salt truck … and make it better …”
OK, yeah, I am easily amused.
