There was the case last month of the man in Portland who intentionally hit 2 cyclists, there was another case in Salt Lake City where a man intentionally hit a cyclist. Now there's this case where a 43 year old man intentionally hit a black cyclist who was riding on the sidewalk. http://www.whotv.com/global/story.asp?s=7038923
My question is this: do you think these drivers really wanted to hit the cyclists or do you think they were just trying to scare the cyclist and ended up hitting them by accident? THe reason I ask this is I know for sure some guys pass really close and honk just to scare me, they leave no room for error.
The thing that gets me about the driver in Portland who hit the 2 cyclists on purpose is that a nun testified for him, she said he was a good and calm driver and had avoided many accidents. Her testimony was on one of the networks sites.
