Open letter

To the idiot in the minivan;

Bike lanes are designed to allow cyclists and vehicles to coexist on the road. While I applaud your instinct to not run over the cyclist, I am still going to honk at you when you swerve into my lane. And yes, when your left tires cross the line, you are in my lane.

In case you have not been properly informed, the left pedal, next to the gas one, is a brake. It will allow you to slow your vehicle down and wait until the other lane is clear before you pass the cyclist. Giving me the finger for honking is not an appropriate response.

Thank you,

Girl in the Civic
