I was on my morning commute today on my single speed Kona Unit (42Tx17T), when a Porsche Carrera 4 (911) zoomed very close past me, crowding me into the curb on a broad boulevard. This was the 6th time this summer the same driver has done this intimidating driving maneuver, so this time I rode around the parking lot at work (a hospital), found the Porsche, and took down the plate number and description of the car. The hospital police would not do anything because it happened off hospital grounds, but they did call the city police.
A city police search of the license number showed that the culprit was a doctor at the hospital (chief of anethesiology, in fact). By this time, there were two uniformed city police as well as a three hospital police. They called this doctor in his office and had him come down to the hospital police room and gave him a good talking to. The bully arrogantly tried to defend his actions. He lied to the officers, saying he had to swerve into me this morning to avoid hitting another car (not true). One of the things he said to me later was that he would often pull up to me on my bike 4 miles from work, yet I would beat the traffic and get to the hospital before him (in his porsche). This made him mad he said, because I must be running red lights. He also said that I take up too much of the far right lane on the broad boulevard in question (also not true), so he wanted to "show me" were I should be riding (two inches from the curb apparently). He said bike riding on the street is a dangerous activity and he called me an organ donor. He tried to bargain with me, saying that he won't crowd me anymore as long as I (in turn) follow every traffic rule myself. To this I glanced at the officers and said that this (so far) is not me getting serious. Drive like that again, and I will start to get serious! That shut him up. He promised to give me plenty of room in the future. He said that when he passes me from now on, he will give me a friendly wave. I said that's fine, but don't honk.
