The Sunday Afternoon Ride

Situation 24

 

Peter came to a stop in the outside portion of the lane and put his foot down to steady the bike. The driver of the car behind,psychologically deterred from trying to "share" the lane because of Peter's lane positioning, stopped behind him.

A taxi went past and there was a gap. Peter took the gap and pulled out onto the main road.

He rode along behind the vehicle ahead, his eyes scanning.

As he looked over the vehicle in front, he saw a man step out onto the side of the road and raise his hand.

Peter:

a) Relaxed the throttle and eased slightly towards the middle of the road.

b) Braked hard

c) Did nothing.
