On my commute home today, not even a mile and a half from my office I was almost hit head on. This was on Harbour Dr. A busy 2 lane roadway, 30 mph. I usually do not have any problems with any of the traffic on this roadway, despite the fact it is busy.
In the city limits road users are not to pass one another on 2 lane roadways.
Less then a mile & a half from my office there was a car oncoming to me, no big deal. Then a jackass in an SUV in the same lane as this car starts to pass the car. I see this, slow down, start sounding my airzound & waving my hands to get his attention that I am in the oncoming lane. I also get ready to take the ditch & prepare for what ever injuries may come from doing so, this road has no shoulder. He finally sees me, guns his engine, instead of slowing down to drop back behind the car, passes & flips me off as he does.
This is what I do not get. I was not in the wrong, I was trying to get his attention because he was putting me at risk with his stupid behavior because he was in a big ass hurry. I wish I had my camera with me. I would have taken a good pic of him, his vehicle & his plate to turn over to the police.
I guess my question is not why he wanted to pass that car, but why flip me off when he was the one in the wrong?
