Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: Colorado Highway 9, Fairplay, Colorado 80440, United States


Riding up the Hoosier Pass in Colorado, I stayed close to the edge of the road, practically riding on the white line since there is no shoulder for road bikes. Most cars were passing with safe clearance. Except for the Ford camper van that chooses not to slow down for oncoming traffic and instead decides to do a tight pass with an inch of maybe two to spare. For some drivers a few seconds saved on the road have more value than the human life?
