Vail Daily letter: Dangerous driver

To the women who tried to pass me in your car in a left-turn-only lane while I was on my bicycle: It is not only Illegal but dangerous also and again at the stop sign to boot! The left-hand lane of South Frontage coming to the stop sign at Vail Valley Drive is only for left-hand turns and is not a passing lane. Just because you are in a hurry, it doesn't give you the right to break the law and make it dangerous for a bicyclist to ride on the road. Consider the fact that it was a Sunday and the farmers market is taking place, there are cars parked on frontage road, there are added pedestrians walking on the roadsides. I was riding legally, and I was riding far enough away from cars parked on South Frontage Road so that if they opened their doors, I would not ride into an accident.
