One thing that ticks me off. Riders giving the rest of us a bad name. Not only a that but could have put a really small dent on the hood of my truck. Please remember, a 130 lb racer body has no chance against a 2,000 lb truck.
I was driving in near a college, not in, near. I was at a big intersection, maybe on other car around. I get the green arrow to make a left so I step on the pedal. Yeah, I saw him coming cause I am an excellent driver and very aware of my surroundings. FYI, I have no tickets in my 30 years of driving.
I see the guy coming but I'm expecting him ot stop since he's about 20 yards from the intesection and my light is G-R-E-E-N! I travel about 10 yards when the guy blows the red light. It's been red about 10 seconds at this point. So I stop as he rides about 10 feet away from the front of my truck. Being the excellent driver that I am, I was able to stop with no incident. He's lucky,.....but stupid!
Not only does he risk his little life right in fornt of my truck, but he rides by looking back with a ***** arse grin on his face like. Not sure if it was a grin of, 'haha you missed me' or 'I know it's stupid but I did it anyway'.
Someone please tell that guy, being in a full race kit and carrying a backpack is not a free pass for blowing thru intersections?
