something in the air
I don't know what it was on friday, but people driving had a rough time being polite. My ride was really late in the day and I picked a route without much traffic so I didn't deal with irate drivers while riding. But as I drove to and from work the stupidity, carelessness, and rude actions of others was unreal. I only used my horn twice to wake people up. It might be the start of tourist season, it might have been the rain, it might have been the sunshine. Who knows but you were not the only one having trouble with idiots. Why do people get into their cars and act like they are the only ones out there?
As I rode later in the day I came up with an idea of an undercover operation...... the police would set up a sting operation, maybe a cyclist is involved maybe a slow moving vehicle. If a driver approched the situation and made a poor judgment, agressive movement, or showed a total lack of respect..... the police could immediatly take the persons license because they are not fit to drive. The again I think about too many things when I ride.
