Check out this video of the collision between a Miami Dade Transit Bus and a bicyclist. The Miami New Times reported about this collision several weeks ago. Aggressive behavior by bus drivers against bicyclists happens all too often. I personally have witnessed and have also been a victim of aggressive behavior by bus drivers on many occasions. I think it is about time that MDT steps up its training of drivers to let them know that bicyclists have every right to the road. At the same time they should ban the use of cell phones by bus drivers. It’s been about a year or so since I last used a bus, but I remember the bus driver talking on his phone the entire time.
