Driver almost turns into bicyclist, but bicyclist stops to avoid collision

Had to stop abruptly

What happened

 

I was biking south on Clark towards Diversey and was riding in the traffic lane because I had to move around a bus that was stopped to pick up passengers. Driver was on Diversey and attempting to turn right onto southbound Clark.

The driver turned right immediately in front of me causing me to stop abruptly.

Suggested improvements for this location: Designate Diversey and Clark, if not already done so, a “No Right on Red” in all directions. If this is already designated the police [or cameras] should enforce it.
