Ive been commuting by bike for about a month now ,and it seems a little more than once a week someone in a car does something incredibly stupid that endangers my safety.The problem I have is it doesnt seem to be because they dont see me...but because they see me as an annoyance,something in the way that shouldnt be there in the first place,so they disregard me and do whatever they want.
Anyway ,the reason for the post is today, for the second time ,i found myself peddling like a mad man and hoping for a red light to try and catch a guy who passed me on the right in the middle of an intersection while making a left.My intentions werent good.
Im sure some of you guys can relate...what do you do
Take a timeout?Count to ten?
Ive never had road rage in a car,but I feel vulnerable on the bike and people seem like they are willing to kill or maim me to save 5 seconds sometimes.
Glad to have this place to vent if nothing else.
