Another Left Cross

This one was close. And It was in my own neighborhood before I even really got started on the ride. You can clearly see the stop sign he blew. Police are being notified. I'll let you know what they say.

Edit: I'm told it was a drive out not a left cross. I'm not sure what it's called for sure other than a motorist who didn't care what he did to a cyclist, but it could have been worse: Scary story

I think that was a Drive Out, not a Left Cross [picky, picky].

The missed stop is almost beside the point. The failure to yield is the main violation.

The saddest part is that when I watch this it doesn't seem out of the ordinary. It happens so regularly that I'm always looking for it, just as it seems you were as you approached the intersection and turned your head repeatedly to the left.

I wonder how much it would cost the city to install cameras at every intersection. Phoenix has video cams on pretty much all the major intersections. If it catches you, snap goes the pic and a ticket to your home. I think it's pretty sweet. Even with this installed, I whitnessed some pretty bad accicents while visiting in April.

You can pay 10 bucks to look the license plate owners name. Me, I personally would make a video tape of the incident and go to his house and politely tell them that in todays world ignoring bikes is going to be harder and harder and that he needs to immediately refrain from being a F--KHEAD.
