What happened

Roadway description: Cycle track (you’re between parked cars and the curb)

Your story: Cab sitting in Kinzie bike lane westbound. I pulled in between the cab and the van in the car lane to my left. I pointed at the bike lane under him without saying a word. [some stuff happened that I’ve redacted] The driver pinned me between the van next to us and his cab. My clip and foot were stuck on the bottom of his cab door so I couldn’t get free. He opened and shut the door on me three more times before speeding off with his door still partially opened.

Improvements: Enforce traffic laws in this city.
