Yesterday on my way to the library after going to the Farm Store to get a soda, I'm stopped at a red light. I'm the first vehicle at the light so I am stopped left of the center of the lane so that right turning traffic can safely make their right turn.
An older gentleman pulls up along side me to my right. The light turns green I start to pull forward so does the older gentleman with about a foot or so of space between us. About a block or so north he makes a right hand turn and I figured that that was the last I was going to see him.
I head on up to the library, and proceed to lock my bike up. And here comes the same red pickup/SUV. While we are outside I try to tell him that what he had done was both dangerous and illegal. He acts like he can't hear me and goes into the library. After I finish locking my bike up and go inside he is at the counter. I again as I am walking by tell him that what he had done was dangerous and illegal.
He tells the librarians that he wants them to call 911 cause he "feels threatened." I just continue to where I go to sit with my laptop to connect to their WiFi network. As I am getting under the table to plug my laptop in the head librarian comes back to talk to me to find out what happened, because unfortunately I did raise my voice a little. She and the other librarians were understanding. And as I left last night I apologized to the two that were still there. And today I apologized to the third one.
She told me that he said that he didn't see me on the road.
I'd like to know how that can be when like I said I was just left of the center of the lane, and I was wearing an orange jersey with the head of the robot from the movie Metropolis on it.
IF he couldn't see me sitting just left of the center of the lane, and wearing that jersey, I think that it's time that he has his license revoked. As who knows what/who else he won't see?
