A young man complained to the social cyberness of how he was honked at 7 times in one ride.
"What's wrong with you drivers!"
I ride in traffic...a lot. I'm the first to spout off about some douche in a 6000 pound cocoon of death, but 7 times?
I don't think I was honked or yelled at 7 times in the past year.
I think we, cyclist, get awfully indignant about our right to the road, and drivers sharing the road but do we ever consider the other side of the equation?
Do we obey the law?
Do we ride as far to the right as safely possible (which can be the center of the lane)?
Stop at stoplights and even stop signs (at least when there's an audience)?
Do we try and share the road too or just expect others to extend us the courtesy?
Life is too short, if you are continuously being harassed on the road, you might want to consider how you are using it. There will always be self absorbed pricks out there, don't give them any fuel for the fire.
