So this morning i was making my first winter (40's for Texans) commute when a cabbie decided to be a meanie. I was in a dedicated left turn lane. I saw that a cab would be joining me at the red light so i moved beyond the first ped. line. I didnt feel like unclipping or t-standing so i made tight circles while keeping an eye on the light. Way before the light turned green i saw him encroach the ped. cross walk and talking to me. I unplugged and he told me that my circles where confusing him. After sizing him up, i unloaded some vulgarity-laden logic on him. First ,i had not crossed into any other lane. Second i was in a marked ped./bike(city ord.) crosswalk with no pedestrians in sight. Third, he didnt even have his signal on for the turn. Now i can understand (not justify) getting upset over being inconvienienced by even a law-abiding cyclist, but he simply didnt want me on the road. I was not slowing him down. There is no left turn on red at that intersection. There was no inconvienience up to the point where he decided to be an ass. After he realized he wasnt dealing with a timid cyclist, he shut up, and i took his picture. People change their attitude when you have a picture of them when they know their wrong. I have a nice collection of license plates and headshots.
