I hate some drivers

I was trackstanding at a light this morning after passing an SUV. While trackstanding the driver of the SUV honks, I look back, and he tells me he wants to make a left. It's a one way street.... that doesn't go left. I inform him of this and he screams "well I just don't like being behind bicyclists!" and nudges my back tire. At this point I hopped off my bike, put it up on the curb, stood right next to his window and told him I have every right to the road as he does, he's clearly not familiar with the area and should be more respectful, and that I'm going to be calling the police with his vehicle information. There were a few more choice words thrown in their by both parties that would be replaced by asterisks. I particularly enjoyed the "go vegan" sticker on the back of his v8.

GO BACK TO PHX!

I hope he gets busted if you called it in. Sad that usually nothing happens.

Sounds like vehicular assault to me. An act clearly worthy of having a cap popped in ones ass.

Yea, I walked to the courthouse which was less than a block away, got the # for the local dispatch, gave the description of the occupants, the plate #, the sticker on the back, and what occurred.

I'm glad I didn't have my ulock in my belt.

I'd have called 911 right there and reported an assault. You are not allowed to "nudge" anyone w/ your car. People that think it's OK are beyond stupid.

I think he was driving under the influence based on his behavior. You should think the same thing, and inform the popo from a pay phone.

Yea, I spaced on the "intoxicated" reference to make it a serious thing to the man. Dude was just trying to impress his girl.

No other justice will be served.
