What happened

Roadway description: Bike lane (left of parking lane)

Your story: The driver of a wide, black Toyota Tacoma pickup truck (license plate WI BIGFSH with handicapped plate) pulled up behind me at Fullerton and Ashland, revving his engine. When we got the green to cross, he sped ahead, then for several blocks tried to block me/squeeze me out from the bike lane, or rode behind me in the bike lane revving his engine. His small children (under 5 years) in the back seemed entertained by his behavior and actually tried to stick their arms out the window to hit me.

Suggested improvements: Police presence and bike lane enforcement. This stretch of marked old-school bike lane from Fullerton/Ashland to Fullerton/Racine is notorious for inattentive and aggressive drivers.
