Help with Rules of the Road

    So, my buddy and I are riding side by side in a wide bike lane, and we approach a 4 way stop.  We arrive at about the same time as a car from the left.  The car driver motions we should go, so I start out.  Unknown to me my riding partner had also motioned for the car to proceed, and we have a near miss.

    What was our mistake?  Should we have designated which rider was the leader?

    I think we've all experienced that same thing, scary as it is.  Glad none were hurt.  Several ifs; If I trust the my riding buddy's judgement I will look to him especially if he's ahead of me.  If I am leading I call out loud "STOPPING" and insist that the car go 1st.  Thanks, Good question Steve. 

    What does everybody else think?  (:  Your bike friend, Vicki
