When I took Driver's Ed, it was drilled into me to be a safe driver, especially around bicyclists.
I have noticed that bicyclists often ride on the white line rather than in the middle of the bicycle lane. So often I have to swerve across the yellow medium to keep the required 3-feet distance from a biker. This has especially been hard along Holladay Boulevard, where there are bike lanes on both sides of the road.
I understand that there are rocks off to the side of the road, but the least a rider can do is move off the white line towards the right to allow cars to pass safely. Car drivers need to do their part to be aware of all moving vehicles, bikes and pedestrians. Bikers need to be courteous users of the road and make a better effort to ride in their lane whenever possible.
