Today I purchased a new motorscooter to replace the one that was totalled in a car accident a couple weeks ago. (I'm ok, but in a lot of pain on my bike.) Anyway, the thing only has 17 miles on it, I haven't even gotten it home from the dealer yet, and some idiot in a jacked up truck is yelling at me, squealing his tires and throwing up gravel behind me because I take a little longer than he thinks I should making a left turn.
Basically, you put people in a car or truck and they lose all respect for human life just to get through a signal one second faster. It's totally out of control. This could happen to me when I'm making any one of my left turns on my bicycle commute as well. I'm really sick of it. What can be done? Is there any community out there actually doing something about road rage? What are they doing?
