As I approached the yellow light at the intersection where I intended to make a left turn, I looked back over my shoulder. I saw you about 70-80 m behind me. Plenty of time for me to change lanes in order to make my turn. I signaled, and moved carefully into the left hand lane. The yellow light turned red as I came to a stop.

It was then that you came roaring up behind me, laying on the horn and leaning out the window, screaming obcenities. You continued to scream at me for the duration of the red light, and proceeded to scream even louder when I began to turn on the flashing green. You may have even tried to throw something at me as you passed me in the intersection box, in the middle of the turn. Or maybe you were just littering, I'm not sure.

Now I have to wonder, if a person making a careful, legal left turn causes you to become so enraged, how would you react if someone actually cut you off in traffic? Or was it the sheer effrontery of a cyclist being in front of you that set you off? You are a maniac, and I hope you have a sore throat.
