I almost tagged one sunday, wouldn't have been a fatality but he sure was being a dunderhead and a "cyclist killed" article likely will be in his future. My 1st bad experience with a cyclist in 20 years driving. Taking my 10yo daughter to a bday party we passed the bike trail I ride to work as it crosses the road, I told her "see that's the hill I come down and when I get to the intersection I have to follow all the lights just like the cars do." 2 miles later we're at another intersection 1st in line, I see the guy on the bike, 18-20, no helmet, stopped on sidewalk to my right wanting to go perpendicular to me, light goes green, I go and that's when this guy decides is his best chance to run his red light right across my path. Hit the brakes hard with a kid whining about the seatbelt hurting. The next few miles to the party were just absolutely full of dad-talk "when you get old enough for big intersections...blah blah. YOU WILL FOLLOW THE LIGHTS!!!"
All happened so quick and he was gone so quick didn't even have a chance to honk or anything.
