    I don't know about most, but I do know that twice in the past few months people have gone out of their way to ask me about my cycling, since they are on the road in their cars at the same time that I...

    The rule I follow is never, ever touch a car.

    As for confrontations, I usually don't do more than mutter to myself. If a driver's actions are bad enough (i.e. dangerous), I may yell, "Nice move"...

    I don't disagree with any of this. But none of it has anything to do with a bicycle as an alternative to driving 1.5 miles.
