Both idiot drivers were in vehicles big enough that they wouldn't have been able to see a trike over the hood and fenders ... and both acted with complete disregard for Groups of cyclists they could see clearly.

If I could Only ride on car-free streets I'd get one in a hurry ... or if I moved somewhere where all the drivers cared at least a little about other people on the road.

Since I don't see either thing happening, I will vent my frustration by furiously mocking recumbents.

(Note: Jim from D'uh would have done this much more elegantly.)
"Some people are jerks so I've decided to become one too." Is that what you are trying to say?
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
