Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: East County Line Road, Lafayette, Colorado 80026, United States


I was turning left from eastbound Hwy 7 onto northbound County Line Rd when the driver of a dark gray Toyota (Corolla?), CO ZOG-504 plate, decided to close pass me during the turn! Cyclists can be especially vulnerable during such a turn (still picking a new line, avoiding debris, etc.) and so it is a good idea to hold back until the driver can deem it is safe enough to pass.
