Your agent just had this story related to him by phone.
You see fear is not confined to cyclists. Any right-thinking person driving a car does not want to come into collision with a bike or another car.
Hitting a cyclist is indeed terrifying because the cyclist has very little protection.
There is fear on both sides of this issue.
This is the same fear your agent had when leaving the city hall parking lot at rush hour one afternoon.
Laurier Avenue was jammed with traffic. Cars were just creeping so there was no break in the traffic.
The only way you could get into traffic was by crossing the bike lanes and blocking it until the traffic moved.
You couldn’t get into the traffic because the bike lane was packed.
So your agent was stranded in the driveway with other cars behind him impatiently waiting for your agent to take the plunge.
I don’t want to hurt anyone.
