I’m hearing a lot of stories from bicyclists this week about abuse they’ve taken at the hands of drivers recently. Eve in our office said she was riding next to the white line on Cheney-Spokane Road over the weekend, when a car came up right behind her and laid on the horn, scaring the heck out of her. When she gave him the ‘What do you want me to do?’ gesture, the driver acted like he might hit her, then swerved around her violently and gave her the finger.
And Martin Beran just posted on Twitter that someone pulled up to him today and yelled, “You’re not a &^%$# car, get off the road!!”
Yikes, folks. I know we’re all testy about the return to fall weather but take a deep breath and count to 10. It’s called Share the Road.
