Stanley Roberts on bike lane abuse and right hooks

KRON’s Stanley Roberts on bike lane abuse in San Francisco and how right hooks happen.

The comments on the YouTube page seem mostly positive, but many people (drivers and cyclists alike) claim this material about how to turn by a bike lane is not in the DMV drivers handbook. You can find it on the chapter entitled “TURNS,” which says:

Right turns–To make a right turn, drive close to the right edge of the road. If there is a bike lane, drive into the bike lane no more than 200 feet before the turn. Watch for bicyclists or motorcyclists who may get between your vehicle and the curb.

Via. I know a bunch of the other Streetsblog SF people but I’ve never met Aaron Bialick; good to know what he looks like.
