Turn signals and crosswalks

All I ask of Boston drivers…two things:

1) signal before you turn. because so few people signal, those of us on two wheels instead of four live in constant fear that you will suddenly pull in front of us. your turn signal will not wear out from use. do it. hanging up the phone will free your hand

2) stop for crosswalks, but don’t stop IN them. on my ride up the Southwest Corridor I am continually amazed at the number of drivers who would never block cars in an intersection but appear to think nothing of blocking pedestrians and others using the MUP. once when I asked someone to move his vehicle he responded not by apologizing but by yelling at me.

Just these two things would make my commute a lot safer. what a joy it is to ride off-peak when there are far fewer cars about…
