Lack of motorist awareness about 'taking the lane'
good concatenation of various blog thoughts here:
Most motorists and law enforcement officials have no idea why cyclists ride in the middle of the lane. They think we're being arrogant (apologies for previous loose vocabulary).
If the Government agrees that this is the safest way to ride (Bikeability), then doesn't it also have a responsibility to train drivers?
Shouldn't the solution be to incorporate the Bikeability principles of taking the lane in the Highway Code?
