When a driver recklessly endangers a much smaller, lighter, slower cyclist or pedestrian, what do you call it?

Cyclists who make irrational and dangerous road blocks are more unqualified to make assesment of where a car can fit in or can't. Just because your the one injured in case of an accident, does not give you the right to make decisions on behalf of other road users, by blocking the road. Again, this is the nature of your vehicle and if you can't live with the increased danger, then you shoudn't ride at all.
So-called "road blocks" aren't dangerous until a driver does something illegal, stupid, and reckless.

Yet here you are strenuously arguing that drivers have more rights than cyclists to use the road.
