What happened

I’m not sure the exact date/time but it was during an afternoon Cubs game. 

I’m riding northbound on Southport through the Addison intersection. At the intersection, the driver of a black SUV, without using their turn signal, turns right into me, trying to head east on Addison. I scream, and they stop before hitting me. 

The driver and passenger both have Cubs gear on. 

Suggested improvements

Bike way sight lines through intersections. More police monitoring & punishment of drunk drivers during Cubs games in Lakeview.
