To the lady who stopped on Lacewood Drive yesterday to allow me to make a left turn on my bike - and to all similarly considerate drivers: Thank you. I know you mean well, and I appreciate the thought. However, traffic flows more smoothly if those who have the right of way take it, and those who don't have the right of way yield. That is the natural order of things, and when you try to reverse that order, confusion ensues. I hesitate to take advantage of your courtesy, because who knows what the guy behind you is going to do? I've had motorists stop to let me turn, only to have the impatient driver behind whip around them and head straight at me! It's safer and easier if everyone just follows the established rules.

thanks anyway
