This morning at sixth and Green, or wherever that second light is just west of Wright and Green, I pulled up and stopped at the red light. 8:30 ish so a fair amount of traffic; another cyclist was facing me.
The light changed to the all-walk and the cyclist cruised. I decided in that split second not to yield to peer pressure... and watched the truck just instinctively follow the bike into the intersection, then stop, pretty sheepishly.
We really do process things quickly and automatically - predictability is *important.*
