Bicyclist nearly hit as drivers use bike lane on the right to pass stopped car


2000 W. Roscoe St, Chicago, IL
32nd Ward, Alderman Waguespack


Had to stop abruptly

What happened

A driver was waiting to turn left from westbound Roscoe into the Speedway gas station (at the southwest corner of the intersection with Damen).

Other drivers were swerving around the turning car to pass it in the bike lane. I was riding in the westbound bike lane, and was nearly hit.

Suggested improvements
