OK BT! Share your stories with me. I had a great run today through the local neighborhood and felt a little like I was in the game Frogger. One car missed my by about 3 feet. The other car had me by inches. Both were on their cell phones and turning in front of me. I was watching very carefully and following all the appropriate rules of etiquette.

How close have you come when running or cycling to drivers and such?

Close!

My preference running was ALWAYS go behind a car rather than in front.  

Riding, I had a driver distracted by a dog (out in the country) come into my lane at a dogleg. Driver saw me late ( I was watching it all develop).  The driver turned around, caught up to me, and apologized (meaning 2 more passes by the dog).

Once had to do the full two hands on the side/front of the car and push off to avoid getting clipped as he rolled through the sign at about 20 mph. Sadly that is SOP in NJ.

Had to do the Starsky-and-Hutch hood slide once in Seattle on a run around Lake Union. Car came out of a driveway and didn't stop til it was across the full sidewalk. I didn't even stop.
