No. At least here in MN, I don't know about other states, but when you are on a bike, you are considered on a vehicle. Since you are on a vehicle, you must follow traffic laws. When I worked for our county public works and was working on the road, we'd cone areas off, and bicyclists would think it's a 'safe spot' to bike and then they'd drive over fresh paint. Well if we caught them, we'd give them a ticket since they're operating a vehicle in a construction zone, but mainly for being an a-hole for driving through the paint making look like sh*t. One bicyclist even tried suing the county cause he ran his bike into one of our trucks in a crosswalk. But the thing is, he was ON the bike, not walking it.
So yes, the driver should have been more respectful and moved over and probably apologized when when the guy came up to him. But the guy with the camera was kind of an a-hole too. Since he was biking with his camera, it was almost set up like he wanted to catch people and have 'justice' for people that did him wrong. And then to keep at the guy waiting for some 'rage' response or something and making a bigger deal out of it than it really needs to be. EVERYONE that is on the road is in danger and EVERYONE is responsible to improve that safety.

Thier statement was:Clearwater Disc Golf Store wrote: "It seems around here we have a lot of aggressive bicyclists with helmet cams that go out and try to antagonize drivers. We talked to the police about it and it seems its an ongoing issue. Too bad they want to take it out on a struggling mom-n-pop local business.
If you have an issue take it to the local police. Don`t slander hard working people on a public forum. I promise I won`t try to move my bike in front of your car and film it and blame it on you.
I have a teenager who rides his bike around here too, all the time. 3 feet is the rule and everyone I know tries there best to abide by it.
Now if you want to hate on us there isn`t much we can do about it.
I think that response really did nothing but add a large dose of gasoline to an already spreading fire. Unfortunate, really and that was the straw for me that made me lose what little respect I had for them.
maybe because the way ___________ have responded. as if they are innocent in all this.
