bicycleAs an active bike commuter, it would be nice to remind automobile drivers and bicycle riders of the rules for bicycles and motorists. Intersections always seem to be an issue while riding, especially when turning left. Another situation a bike rider can get into is when a 2 lane turns into one lane and a right turn lane.

The next thing I knew, this car had turned left against the red light! Well, on went the lights and siren and I chased down this alleged red light runner.
