The Story of the Wiggle Bike Path: Over-Privileged Cyclist vs. Under-Attentive Driver

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Here’s a little vignette from The Wiggle bike path in the Lower Haight area of San Francisco. The driver of this green cute-ute literally didn’t know where she was going. So, she sat a bit at the¬†westbound stop sign on Waller at Steiner while trying to think of her next move. Maybe she was lost, or looking for a parking space, who knows.

Then here comes dude on his bike. As he’s he’s blowing the stop sign, passing betwixt the SUV and a parked car, the SUV driver decides to turn right. This cuts off the cyclist, who starts out yelling, “Hey lady, do you know where you’re going?” Something like that. Repeatedly.

So here’s the scene after he chased her down Steiner while yelling all the while.

No doubt the driver needs to try harder, but the cyclist seems to think he has the right to blow stop signs with impunity. If he had stopped and then gotten cut off, then he’d have a point.

Anyway, this typifies your Over-Privileged Cyclist vs. Under-Attentive Driver angry interaction in San Francisco.

Oh well.
