It seems to be a form letter. Granted, the incident was an isolated one, unlike the white Honda events, so it's very unlikely that I'll see that driver again. But it would be wonderful to get some companies with large fleets to include some cycling information in their safety literature. I work in aviation and safety is pounded into us with annual training. I'd suspect that any large fleet operation has something similar, if only because the lawyers insist.

A delivery driver for New Belgium nearly creamed me last year. I described the incident and vehicle on a contact form from New Belgium's website. In response, I got a personal note from the president of New Belgium letting me know they would ensure this driver (who works for a sub) and all of their drivers know to respect the rights of cyclists to use the road.

Similar thing happened in my previous city of Longmont, Colorado. Utility worker hooked me, I wrote to the city, my note was forwarded to the appropriate department and the driver's supervisor called me and told me he had a meeting with the driver.
