, reported at 825-999 Odelia Rd Ne Albuquerque, NM 87102, USA.
Buzzed by ABQ ride bus while riding bike in bike lane. Bus passed within 18" of handlebars at a speed that seemed higher than pored 35mph. ABQ ride probably needs to update transit drivers on laws protecting (supposedly) vulnerable road users>>>5 foot bicycle passing ordinance. Incident occurred @ 2:15pm, October 19, 2017 just east of ABQ high and west of freeway
Thank you for submitting this request, it has been resolved. Notes: ------- all drivers are trained on 5 foot law. lack of bus information makes this complaint impossible to follow up on. drivers are also trained on this law during defensive driving which is given every 4 years. defensive driving does have a bicycle safety portion. buses will be monitored for compliance. -------
The picture shows the bus information so do not accept "impossible to follow up on". The information including license plate and time of day has been provided. Perhaps training every 4 years is not enough and certainly when another road user is overtaken by a close passing bus there is an "issue" that needs attention.
