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?
