    Commuters Beware!

    A road rager near you may soon have one of these.

    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

    All those shell casings on the road would likely cause some tire punctures.

    why bother with a cumbersome design like that?
    The pros would knock out a vehicle like that with one RPG-7 or a land mine before it can even deploy.

    That would also need a raging passenger.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I decided to fight back, so I got one of these already.

    The downside is that my commuting Trek now weighs in at about 1200 pounds!
