Are too many motorists misinterpreting the idea of giving us (cyclists) plenty of room on the road? On recent road rides and when driving I have witnessed several instances on people overtaking cyclists with lots of room but seemingly ignoring the fact that other cars are coming in the opposite direction. On my last road ride, I was scared several times by really close misses right in front of me caused by this. I struggle to imagine what would happen if the two cars collided right in front of me. And then yesterday, driving back from a ride, several cars overtook riders but came right into my lane causing me to brake/swerve.
Can they simply not wait until the road is clear and then overtake?
