At this particular intersection I was cut off by one driver after they were able to pass. Before that this driver repeatedly honked their horn. Imagine my surprise when I called the Placentia police department to report an aggressive driver. I was told that it wasn't against the law to cut off a cyclist or to repeatedly honk the horn. I was told they only way the police would take a report was if I was struck by the car.
I was also informed by the city that bike lanes were a privilege and not a right and that state law only requires that bicycles be "considered" when planning a project. It is not mandatory to include bicycle lanes on new construction.
This is yet another example of Southern California being in love with cars and inhibiting people from using alternative transportation.
