< insert obligatory post about how majority of motorists are fucking idiots >
I bike back and forth to work pretty much every day now. I wear a helmet, even though I swear it's not going to help me when some fucktard sideswipes me because he doesn't think that I deserve to be crossing the road when I have the green light. Or some shit. Idiots don't signal. They don't look in their rearview mirrors. They either drive too fast or too slow. They don't slow down when making a turn. They give cyclists absolutely no room on narrow roads so the cyclists are forced to bike on the sidewalk, which is illegal. These are usually annoyances to other drivers if they're in their in cars, but when you're on a bike, it's pretty much life and death.
