something to love about traffic

We – imagine a cycling public somewhere in the distance – often spend a lot of time complaining about the behavior of drivers on the road. Granted, there’s often a reason for it (see here and here for two of the most recent), but I thought I’d throw a quick thank you to all those drivers who take time to signal their right turns. There were a handful of you in Beverly Hills tonight, mostly turning south off of Burton Way, and as someone who tends to spend a lot of time in that uncertain space between car doors and the right lane of traffic, it’s a real pleasure to see you planning ahead and making your actions visible to me. You might not even have seen me all that well in the fog, but I saw you.

So thanks.

On a completely unrelated note, if you haven’t read Gary’s first brush with the track, check it out. It sounds like fun.
