Bicyclist nearly clipped by cabbie on Oak Street


Passed closely

What happened

Livery cab nearly clipped me by passing within one inch. I tapped on his hood to let him know I was nearly hit by him and he proceeded to chase me for a block down the street and yell “hey, you b***h!” at me.

Suggested improvements for this location: Protected lanes on Oak Street connecting Michigan Avenue (at the Lake Front Trail) to Wells. Many people use Oak Street to cut over from the Lakefront Trail to the buffered bike lanes on Wells – especially to avoid the curve in the LFT further south.

    This was my post. I wasn’t almost clipped by another person on a bike – as the title suggests – but by a cabbie.
