She was kind of stuttering something about how she never knew what to do when she saw bikes in the road and was glad to find out. Then she explained that she was in her daughter's car (as if that somehow made a difference). Clearly stressed/thankful she lingered a bit too long and when the light turned green she was still stuttering/thanking us. The Creighton van behind her honked and we started to roll off. We thanked her once again for caring and she hollered, "I'm going to go real fast around you guys now! Thanks!"
