I reached out to the California Highway Patrol. I interviewed Edgar Figueroa, Public Information Officer for the California Highway Patrol, Southern Division. He is experienced in and is keenly interested in the coexistence of motorists and cyclists. Geographically his area of interest encompasses the Santa Monica Mountains west of Los Angeles, a network of twisty, mountain 2-lane roads that is a haven for road cyclists, as well as motorcycles and cars. I described the situation above, which occurred in a rural part of San Diego County, and asked him a few questions.
