Thought we would share this horrific article with everyone. This guy sounds like the rant of some of the people that have run me off the road… people that will curse you out, call you names and yell at you to get back on a sidewalk while they rev their engine at you.
Here are some snippets of the article by The State News:
“Black 2001 Saturn SC2. That’s the car I drive — and if you’re a bicyclist on the road but not in a bike path and you see my car, I hope you’re wearing a helmet, because I might run you over.”
“I cannot drive my car on the sidewalk, so why must you ride your bicycle where I drive?”
“I respect bicyclists who use bicycles as a form of exercise, since people certainly can never get enough fitness in their everyday routines. But for as much as I respect and appreciate bicyclists, I will not hesitate to honk at them when they are interfering with the roads.”
“Bicyclists on the road are a driving hazard to people in automobiles, since many bicyclists make turns without using hand signals and ride too close to other vehicles when there is no designated bike path.”
“But, hey, snap out of it. You’re not Lance Armstrong. And those are the headlights of my black 2001 Saturn SC2 bearing down on you.”
