I understand that being a driver on roads where there are bicyclists can be stressful, especially downtown where riders feel confident enough to weave through traffic. But I know, as a bicyclist, that as long as traffic keeps moving predictably and I keep alert, that I'll be okay, and as a driver, I just keep reminding myself of that. Because I'm also a bicyclist, I know to hug the center line and keep a steady speed, to look before turning or opening my door. Perhaps, if it freaks you out so much that there are bicycles on the road, you could try taking a month or so to be a bicyclist and find out where the true dangers are in cycling, rather than releasing all this pent up stress on the internet, threatening, cursing and demeaning people over a topic that, really, effects a small population that knows their shit way better than you think.
