Dear Drivers


Dear Drivers,

I’m a driver too, so don’t be insulted: you can’t have it both ways.

Four-way stops are tricky. I don’t ever try sneaking through. I always stop at the sign when other cars are present or slowing to stop. I’ve seen drivers’ reactions when cyclists float through. It’s not pretty.

So when I come to a stop, please don’t angrily wave your hand at me as though I’m the idiot for not rolling out in front of you when it’s your turn to go. I appreciate the gesture, but I’m not going to do it on my own and get run over. A friendly wave is lovely. Your eye rolling is less so.
