RE THE letter "Center City driver frustrated by bicyclists" (Oct. 28):
Mr. Bockman wrote, "It is becoming ever more frustrating to have to share the road with bicyclists." But if all bicyclists were driving cars instead, they'd be taking up three times as much road space sideways, and at least twice as much lengthwise! It's the other drivers who are in the way, not the bicyclists.
A bicyclist has a legal right to take as much road space as necessary while riding as far to the right as is practicable. If a bicyclist is riding on the right beside parked cars, the cyclist has a right to ride far enough out to avoid getting hit by an opening car door, even if that means taking the lane in front of a car.
