Driver fails to use turn signal, causing bicyclist to brake suddenly on Wells


Right hook (car turned right, across your path)
Injury: No

What happened

Roadway description: Bike lane (left of parking lane)

Your story: About to cross North Avenue going southbound on Wells Street. Light turned green, two cars turning right in front of me. Parked cars on the right side of the street. Van without a turn signal turns right just in front of me and I have to use my front brake to slow down. No acknowledgement from the driver, no words exchanged.

Suggested improvements: [refreshed] bike lane markings, or a yield to bicycles sign could potentially help in this case.
