Grateful for Forgiveness

Day 3: I am grateful for drivers that are forgiving.

I commute by bike most every day, which means I get to interact with the drivers on our roads. Since it is November I thought it would be nice to post some of the things I am grateful about the drivers in the area. I know that the conflict between bikes and cars can get out of hand sometimes, but there are also a lot of good drivers out there.

Cyclists are in someways just like motorists, we make mistakes. Fortunately there are some good drivers in Eagle Mountain that understand that cyclists are not perfect. We should stop at stop signs and obey the same laws that cars should obey. People in cars frequently do a rolling stop at stop signs as do cyclists. Just because someone else violates the law does not make OK, but it is nice when drivers understand that nobody is perfect.

I really am grateful to the drivers that forgive my dumb mistakes and don't put my life in jeopardy just to prove that I was wrong. In a bike vs car accident the person on the bike ALWAYS loses.

I just love to ride my bike.
