Would You Ride Like This?

While sitting at a stop light on 12-7-12, I took a photo of a high school girl on the road. When the light turned green, her and the buses both went straight. Any thoughts on doing this?

You know what is funny? I posted this photo in another forum asking the same question about it. I gave no opinion. And I'm being attacked, called crazy, and asking if I was serious. Two totally different sets of opinions. Just shows the ranges bicyclists have.

It looks like there are three buses in the photo but you said two went straight. If the bus closes to the curb is in a right turn lane then I would be where she is.

Update: I was mistaken earlier here. The bus to the left turns right when the light turns green, and the other two buses will be going straight. I agree with your accessment Farrowlane. The thing about this girl she bikes on the sidewalk to and from school when I've seen her.
