This is a hot topic where I work. I drive for Trimet. Not only do I drive a bus, my pick-up truck, I also ride my bike. I have had bus drivers come far too close to me when I'm on my bike. I've had numerous bicyclists come within inches of getting killed while I drive the bus. Is there a solution? We need everyone to SLOW down. Driving while talking on the cell phone. Driving while texting, drinking coffee, eating lunch, changing diapers(yes I've seen this) working with your PDA. All being done at speeds that almost always excede the speed limit. I loe riding my bike but there are times when I won't because I know the road I will be on does not have a bike lane. Or the road is just too busy.
