What's up with the BI-cyclists along marine drive in West Vancouver...I was enjoying a nice ride to Horshoe Bay and encountered numerous cyclists who would ride side by side purposely blocking the entire lane and preventing cars from passing. If you've driven this road you will know that there aren't many safe places to pass so it just seemed to piss the drivers off in the lineup of cars behind them.
Once all the cagers had eventually moved past them...and it was my turn...they again went side by side.....and fully aware/knowing that I was behind them....as a sportbike at 10k rpm isn't exactly quiet...once I got a chance to pass these ass hats one of them had the balls to give me the finger and start yelling at me. Which kind of confirmed that they were doing this on purpose.
Isn't there a law or something which could be enforced (where were you Traffic enforcement squad?) to prevent these clowns from taking over that road...something along the lines of:
Careless driving prohibited
144 (1) A person must not drive a motor vehicle on a highway
(b) without reasonable consideration for other persons using the highway, or
145 (1) A person must not drive a motor vehicle at so slow a speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, except when reduced speed is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law.
(2) If the driver of a motor vehicle is driving at so slow a speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic, a peace officer may require the driver to increase his or her speed, or to remove the motor vehicle from the roadway to the nearest suitable place and to refrain from causing or allowing the motor vehicle to move from that place until directed to do so by a peace officer.
Driver on right
150 (1) The driver of a vehicle must confine the course of the vehicle to the right hand half of the roadway if the roadway is of sufficient width and it is practicable to do so, except
(a) when overtaking and passing a vehicle proceeding in the same direction,
(b) when the right hand half of the roadway is closed to traffic while under construction or repair,
(c) on a highway designated and marked by signs for one way traffic,
(d) if necessary when operating snow removing equipment, or
(i) the movement of a vehicle, or combination of vehicles, is permitted by and is done in conformity with the terms of the oversize permit issued under the Commercial Transport Act, and
(ii) the width of a vehicle, or combination of vehicles, or the width of a load on the vehicle makes the operation of the vehicle or combination of vehicles on the right hand half of the roadway unsafe.
(2) The driver of a vehicle proceeding at less than normal speed of traffic at the time and place and under the conditions then existing must drive the vehicle in the right hand lane then available for traffic, or as closely as practicable to the right hand curb or edge of the roadway, except when overtaking and passing a vehicle proceeding in the same direction, or when preparing for a left hand turn at an intersection or into a private road or driveway.
