Between South First and Riverside... You know what I'm talking about. That section of road is filled with morons who don't care to follow traffic laws.
So here's how it goes:
If you're riding east on Barton Springs, right after South First st, the right hand lane splits into 2 lanes (one is a straight or turn lane, the other is strictly a turn only lane). Cars in the left hand lane don't care that they have to continue following between their white striped lanes to remain in the same lane of traffic, and to not kill someone or have a fender bender. Hence, I almost get run over at this point in my ride home EVERYDAY.
I'm sure someone has complained about this before, but there is still nothing being done. I've never witnessed anyone getting ticketed for not using a turn signal (signalling that yes, I am going to be cutting you off) or not obeying traffic laws, nothing!!
I called Austin Transportation Services today to let them know of my concern. Not sure what they'll do about it, but I plan to call everyday until something happens. If you know the intersection I'm talking about or have almost been hit there yourself, you should give them a call and complain about it.
