Awful.

Just today in the middle of nowhere on a country road another guy in his work pickup deliberately buzzed all of us at 80-100km/h horn blaring and middle finger sticking out the window(so i am told... i don't bother to look at people who are honking horns anymore)

He could easily see all of us from a kilometer away.

Too bad i forgot his license plate, i would have called the OPP but really this incident didn't stand out enough in terms of motorist's behaviour.

Judging by your ultra-very low post count, do you think the story is cool? :|

What's the fascination with death and injury reports?

we post these so that we learn from others accidents. lots of BF members post their own accident reports. plus if you are in a general area you can get a heads up about a certain risk such as the green line on huntington ave in boston where a kid was killed a couple weeks ago.

Deaths and injuries are important.

This is one reason to have a helmet or bike cam, to record stuff like this. Assuming of course that the polce would actually do something...
