What happened

I was riding southbound on a Divvy bike past Marina City. I had lights on my helmet to supplement those on the bike. A car that had been standing at the curb suddenly started to pull out into traffic when I was next to it. I called out loudly as I veered left in the lane. The driver stopped and waited until after I’d passed.
