Subj: Road rage on Pleasants Valley Road
Today a bunch of kids in a blue BMW almost made me a statistic. As I was pedaling along a foot from the right side of the lane, they swerved at me on my bicycle, forcing me to leave the road, and then came back for another try.This was not an accident, this was an intentional act. The front seat passenger was hanging out the window screaming incoherently. Not the smartest kids, giving me another look at the personalized license plate, MERCIE. After reporting the incident to the CHP, who sent an officer to talk to the driver's parents, I completed my 56 mile ride. CHP officer is a cyclist, too, but is afraid to ride the backroads around Vacaville. I couldn't identify the driver, and the passenger didn't touch me, so nothing else will happen to them. Damn.
