I managed to hit a parked car when my cheap-o cantilevers on a no-name brand MTB gave up the ghost. This was years ago. No sign of the driver, so I left a note. Something to the effect of "Greetings! I ran into your car!" It, to, suffered damage to the rear signal casing. Cost me around $60 to have it fixed. The other day, though, a gang of high-school punks formed a walking line across the bike-path here. Guess they figured I'd have to go up the sand into the weeds. I took aim at the biggest one and looked him straight in the eye as I accelerated on the cranks. He jumped at the last second. That was no accident. I gave the power-salute and pedaled on my way.
