Default The other kind of flashers

I think the driver who "flashed" me was probably freaked out to see a cyclist that close to the center line waiting to make a left turn. He/She probably thought either a) I was going to foolishly barge ahead into oncoming traffic and they were taking emergency measures to avoid crashing, or b) I was in untold peril waiting there for 5 more seconds for traffic to clear and they were saving me by allowing me to escape sooner.
