Now read this: That’s a turn lane you’re in, dummy

Someone please read this to the helmetless guy who was pedaling his bicycle down First Avenue East in Cedar Rapids this afternoon, seemingly oblivious to the traffic whizzing by him in both directions.

That’s a left-turn lane, not an express lane for dummies.

That means you turn, you don’t ride down the middle of First Avenue block after block giving other cyclists a bad name and daring motorists to run you down.

And you motorists: Don’t laugh. It isn’t an on-ramp for dummies, either. You’re going to hurt someone pulling that crap.

Maybe they should still call it a suicide lane.
