No Honking Please!

This is just a short note to the world, those who spend their transportation energies and time driving, specifically those who have ever seen a person bicycling in the road.

These cyclists, myself included, just want to get safely and quickly from A to B – the same as the driver.

Please refrain from honking behind cyclists. Just pass the cyclist like one would pass any other vehicle on the road. Give enough space (in Ft Wayne, IN, this means 3 feet of passing space). Most drivers don’t go around honking at cars. Please show the same respect for cyclists because we are already on edge in traffic, vulnerable and honking increases one’s stress instead of decreasing it.

Please read this article about safety goals for bicyclists and bicycle riding in Ft Wayne, Indiana and this one from BicycleIndiana.org.

Thank you for reading.
