    It's just lovely around these parts.

    For a moment, I thought that you were referring to Deer Creeek Road, in the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu--a road that I often ride on.

    Regardless, that SOB ought to be dragged naked behind his pu truck, then tarred and feathered and finally hung from a tree.

    I know, a bit drastic. But stories like this one really get me angry.

    One moment you are minding your own business, enjoying a nice day of riding and then the next moment you are being dragged under a car driven by a murderous a$$hole.

    I can't find any news articles about this.
    Was the driver cited?

    I'm sure the police were involved. He should be charged with vehicular assault, at least, if not attempted manslaughter.

    I'm surprised the other riders aren't up for attempted manslaughter charges. With another group of riders the driver might risk being beaten within an inch of his life.

    Judging by the damaged corner of the truck and the taco'd wheel there was a good bit of impact force. At least there appears to be a good number of witnesses...

    Especially if the other group of riders were wearing black leather jackets.

    Well, for better or worse, this seems to be another difference between bikers and cyclists. It seems like this guy didn't get the Tweet about the Dr. now spending time in jail for wanting to "teach the rider a lesson".

    The cyclists in the above video were idiots for not pulling over. They obvisouly had an angry and irrational person piloting a 4000 lb weapon and they choose to stay in front of them and just make them angrier.

    I have dealt with motorists', like that moron, before. I haven't moved on account of the motorist's horn. If there is an allowance in the state traffic code, that allows the motorist to cross the double-yellow line to pass a cyclist, then there is no reason for that kind of behavior from motorists'.

    The look on the driver's face, from the picture the OP provided, says to me, the motorist could care less about what happens to the cyclists'.

    There is just such a law in CO.
    A few days ago I had some idiot laying on the horn trying to pass me in a roundabout!

    It as nothing to do with the law. Its simple common sense that when a crazy person has a 4000 lb weapon behind you then you move out of the way.

    I see that you bike scared. But I don't. Also, It has to do with the posted speed limit, and how fast you can go. If you are going 10mph, on a 50mph, you have no business being on that road.

    I would have a hard time not beating the guy. But the best thing would be to start video recording him and ask him as many incriminating questions as possible that the prosecution can use against him. Considering this guy was already going off, should not be too hard.

    I'm not sure I understand your last post Chris. Are you saying that, due to the speed difference of posted limit and actual cyclist speed, that the cyclists should not have been cycling that road?

    She was asking for it! Did you look at that dress she was wearing? It's common sense that men are crazy and horny, and she should have worn a hijab.

    He was asking for it. He was driving an expensive car and wearing a Rolex ... should've driven a Yugo and worn a cheap Timex.
