Relevant observations (satire) @ Dave Moulton's blog:
10 useful tips for car drivers
1.) If you see a cyclist ahead and you canít pass because of opposing traffic, resist the urge to run over him, even though you can. You know what a mess it can make of your car if you hit a deer; a cyclist will probably do even more damage.
2.) Donít throw stuff at cyclists: In some states there is a $250 fine for this; plus there is a $1,000 fine for littering; it can add up. If you feel you must throw something at a cyclist, think of the environment; throw something that is biodegradable.
