Take a look at this load of crap I found at Gothamist:
This wanna-be journalist notes how police say the delivery truck driver was at fault for dooring the messenger yet she just has to end her article by saying:
Does that not make it sound like Bike messengers (and cyclists in general) are reckless and dangerous?

I posted a nasty comment on that site, they are so ignrant.
Can everyone also post a nasty comment to let "The Gothamist" know that bicyclists aren't always at fault when they get hit by cars?????
I'm pretty pissed off because yesterday night I was cycling down 5th Ave. and almost got clipped by a b*tch in an SUV, she had the nerve to scream at me because she almost hit me.
I slowed down at the next red light and just stared at her with a big grin as I waited next to her.

Please continue discussion in this thread.
They seem to have edited the story since. Now it reads more like the Newsday story and has the same photo.
