It has been a strange few days...
It seems that lately, very similar cars have buzzed me ...
Last week, friday, on the way to work - a lady smoking a cigarette in a white hyundai sonata (older model) buzzes me, I catch up to her at the light and it goes like this:
me: You need to give bicycles 3 feet of space when you pass.
lady: you were in the road.
me: there is no bike lane, that is where I have to be.
lady: you need to be on the right of the white line.
me: you don't have the right to kill people with your car.
lady: ignores me.
me: you need to respect bicyclists, and you need to give 3 feet when you pass, its the law in florida. - and I ride off.
fast forward to this morning...... on the way to work again .
Same model hyundai (gold colored) and another lady in the car... I am making a left turn and she comes around the same turn and screeches the tires and crosses over from the inside to the outside lane in one shot ... those kinds of turns always scare me.. lol ..
I catch up to her at the next light, and she is the 2nd car in line on the right side... I pass, nobody coming, I go past the red light..
about 1/2 a block down, the car in front passes me safely, gives me 3 feet - no problem. Here comes the golden girl ... my entire body lights up with her headlight glare, I see her front headlight in my peripheral vision so I knew she was CLOSE ... she buzzes me fast and just as she passes I slammed my palm against her rear passenger window..
She gives me the finger and I give it back, - she merges onto the highway ramp.
