Driver speeds out of parking garage while bicyclist stops quickly to avoid collision

Type

Had to stop abruptly

What happened

Driver exited the parking garage with little consideration for potential pedestrians on the sidewalk and on focused on the eastbound traffic on 8th street. As soon as I arrived at the alley under the ‘L’, the driver accelerated from the parking garage forcing me to come to an abrupt stop to avoid running into his car.

Ed. note: submitter declined to provide suggested improvements.
