Swerving Cars

Posted on Sat, Apr 14, 2012 at 8:23 AM

To the teenage boys in the grey 4-door car who were on Grover Rd, turning
on to Hallet Rd around roughly 4pm on Sunday, March 25th. I am a newer road
cyclist and have only been road biking for a year. This is the first time
that someone has slowed down their car and swerved their car towards me as
if to run me off the road. It's also the first time that someone has
directed either water or spit at me out of their car window. I couldn't
tell which liquid it was and truthfully I don't want to know. What I do
want is for each of you (there were three or four of you in the car) to do
is try this experiment: Step 1-Crash your cars into the ditch at 20mph.
Step 2-Crash your bikes into the ditch at 20mph. Step 3-Tell me which crash
resulted in broken bones and a few thousand dollars in ER bills. In
summary: Do not do that again. If you do, I hope the cyclist gets your
license plate and presses any and all possible charges
