well i was trying to say that i don't see these cyclists that are such a pain or a such a nuisance that it would drive a person to assault someone that is reducing pollution, congestion and bettering their personal health.

Also i was trying to harp on the fact that there are drivers that literally dont care about anyone besides themselves. A car at speed is much more lethal than a bicycle, so if you want to assault someone attack drivers that should not be on the road because they have no regard for your well being

I really like my cameras, mainly for their being able to document the urban landscape changes along my commute routes. My one wish is only if I had these cameras many years earlier.

Maybe they read posts here - many of which are self righteous.

I suppose its self righteous to not want to die.

Virginia too at least. Remember the "McMissile" case? Felony charges for throwing a shake at another vehicle.

It is the 'agony' of cycling on the road in a lot locales'.

Thanks to the mod who cleaned out the stuff about guns. CBHI and whoever he was responding to: please take your gun argument to one of the many many many many other threads about riding while packing. It's an old and tired conversation and has nothing whatsoever to do with this thread.

CB HI was basically saying the same thing you did. Due to the controversy, we are not allowing discussion of SYG laws and their ramifications anywhere on Bikeforums. Plenty of other places to talk about it,
