    Since I'm a cyclist but also a driver, I try to figure out what cyclists do that annoys drivers and avoid these behaviors when I'm on my bike. Unpredictability is a biggie. Darting in and out of traffic is another. Running stop signs and lights is another. And so is trying to get a head start at intersections.

    When I'm on my bike, I let cars go first at intersections because they're going to pass me anyway. And when I'm on open road, I wave them past me. I ride only on roads that are safe for bikes and obey traffic laws. I go for years at a time without having an incident with a car. Yes, there are a few jerks behind the wheel who don't like cyclists on their road. But, sadly, the converse is also true.
