Bicyclist gets buzzed on Franklin while riding Divvy towards a station

Location

450 S Franklin Street
Alderman Solis, 25th Ward

Type

Passed closely
As a reminder, Chicago code and Illinois statute require that motorists pass bicyclists with at least three feet of space between.

What happened

I was riding north on Franklin Street towards a Divvy station when the driver of a dark gray SUV (license plate #QLDOG) sped up from behind and steered towards me in an attempt to intimidate. They sped off, running yellow/red light at Van Buren.

Suggested improvements

Include a bike lane on east and west side of street.
