Bad road habits only worsen the already contentious relationship between cyclists and motorists. Here are a few complaints from each camp.
Bicyclists hate when motorists:
* Suddenly make right turns across bike lanes without so much as a glance over their shoulders for cyclists cruising along next to them.
* Back out of driveways without looking for bike traffic.
* Suddenly open driver's side doors into bike lanes (often done after a motorist has slowly cruised in a bike lane looking for a parking space, forcing cyclists to brake or stop).
* Cruise up a few feet behind cyclists and blast their horns to announce their presence--or just for the fun of it.
