Division & Liberty

Stopped. Watched. icon

Waiting for light to turn, doing the final bicycle trailer haul for the day, standing in leftmost lane of Division, headed northbound. SUV to my left, pointed eastbound on Liberty, decides to turn right, against one-way traffic, onto Division. Straddling my top tube, I hold out my hand with the universal sign for STOP … in the name of love … before you break my cart. Welcome to Ann Arbor. If you turn the wrong way down a one-way street, you gonna get pun-ished.

    meanwhile on HRD near Maple (rough stretch): a distant toot (he saw me) and 20 seconds later a medium blue, extended, windowless van (no markings) speeds by only inches away from my bicycle and me. No on-coming & clear road… its open season I guess.

    This is the crazy season. Lots of people on the road who have never driven in Ann Arbor before. Be careful. It’ll get better around November.
