Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: Lake Shore Boulevard West, Toronto, Ontario M8W 3P7, Canada


We can see the motorcycle on the left hand side of the white band of the pedestrian crossing and I'm slightly to the left of another one. Each band are 60 cm wide.

Doing the math, there is about 1,0 m from my center line to the center line of the bike, the issue: motorcycle is likely 40 cm and myself too. Remaining distance is only 20 cm, there was plenty of space available. Riding a bike is scary, so many events like this.

Schedule 43 of the highway traffic article 439,2 requires to leave 1 m space to bicycles
