not if the cyclist is moving at 3x the rate of traffic. One second he's not there. Next second he's in your blind spot. Next second he's sideswiping you like it's YOUR fault.

It's up to the cyclist to slow down to match the rate of traffic (law says no more than 5mph faster than traffic) and if conditions permit, the cyclist may then proceed slowly and carefully to split the lane (which in theory reduces congestion).

The truck maybe didn't signal--that's on the truck. But still. It's an overall lack of common courtesy to try to blast through traffic like that. Motorcyclists act like they have their own set of rules. Get your own set of roadways ya cunts.
