Honk if you hate meanies

Posted on Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 1:56 PM

I often almost get smoked on my morning bicycle commute and today was no exception. A car nearly ran me off the road and continued to sandwich me tight to the curb when it had plenty of room to provide ample berth.

While it was infuriating, what was great about it was how everyone else reacted. The oncoming cars honked angrily and a pedestrian gave the driver a big old middle finger.

Thanks everyone for being outraged and calling that driver on such reckless disregard for my safety. —Not a smoked sandwich
