A few clips of large vehicles passing a cyclist using a bike lane. Vehicles are too close because the bike lane does not provide adequate buffer for its exposed (not encased in steel) user. The driver of a large vehicle must deliberately move to the left side of his lane, or across the lane line in some cases, to provide adequate passing clearance. But no other lanes in the system are designed that way. Motorists have the expectation that if they stay centered in their lanes they are not going to encroach into the space of users of other lanes. This is one of many fundamental flaws with the standard 5ft bike lane.
