Stereotype schmereotype …

I was driving Emma home from swimming lessons at River Grove Community Centre, where I encountered 2017’s award for horrible driving. Bristol has a pretty wide bike lane. It is about half the size of a regular lane. There are pictures of bikes painted on it, and it is clearly not wide enough for even the smallest of cars. As I am driving along, there was a Toyota Echo driving very slowly in the bike lane. I thought perhaps it was just there because they had just pulled out of the plaza, and I would have to cross over the bike path to get to the right turn lane.

 

As I get to the intersection, the Toyota Echo mysteriously creeps up beside me, driving over the painted chevrons and the bike lane. I just think to myself “Please don’t be Asian … please don’t be Asian …” and as the car pulls up … 師奶 city. Sigh …
