Yesterday, a guy right hooked me. It was the evening commute home. I was in the bike approaching an intersection.
Among other things, I am very careful to monitor the turn signals of the cars in my rear-view mirror when I approach an intersection. When someone is going to turn right, I like to position myself to not be next to that car at that intersection.
Well, yesterday this truck that had had no turn signal on pulled up to me like it was going to pass me then at the intersection just cranked the wheel over and turned right. No signal. Just turned.
I don't usually do this. It's been years since I last confronted someone cuz you don't really know who you are dealing with, but this was really blatant so I followed the guy. He pulled over and I told him that he cut me off.
He responded by saying that I needed to watch where I was going so that I would not get hit. (That was not a promising start to the conversation, the guy was big too)
I then began to forcefully educate the guy the rules of the road, telling him that I had the right of way that in that circumstance and that he had to yield to me.
Then right in the middle of all that, the guy just out and all of a sudden apologized. Actually took me off guard. So I stopped, accepted his apology and moved on.
