Dangerous moves

These are the two most annoying movements by car drivers you will daily experience one or more times per day on the bike in Taipei.

First is he “Catch Up and Turn”. Many drivers like to try to "beat" the biker and turn before the biker even if the biker already started to pass the crossing. Specially Taxi’s and those small blue pick-up trucks like to do this, because they are in such incredible hurry.

The second one is the “Cut off and pick up” movement. Most of the time these are done by taxi’s and buses. (because they pick up more people, eh) but recently I have been experiencing this by some regular car drivers also. This behavior shows the incredible lack of respect for bikers.

P.S: If you are a car driver, please don’t train these movement since they are incredible dangerous and you definitely will get some angry face or noise feedback back from bikers.
