What is the magic number?

Today was an interesting commute day. Yes, it really was!

I don't write about ignorant drivers all the time, although I see a fair share of them in this fair city, but never as many as five/six in one day. Today, was one of those days.

I counted five/six weird behaviors:
  1. Honked at twice, once in the AM and once in the PM, while lawfully operating my bicycle
  2. Yelled at, at Royal & MacArthur: something akin to "get off the road, you moron"
  3. Passed on the left, by a large SUV. A close call!
  4. Passed on the right within the lane and cutoff
  5. Almost got ran over in a 3 lane road, while riding lawfully in the right lane
#3 and #4 happened very close to my home, on a relatively calm road, with one lane in each direction. There is a parking lane on this road. I guess some of these auto drivers are expecting me to drive in the parking lane, cut in and out, as need be. But, I will not do that. It is illegal to do that and furthermore, it only further obfuscates my intention to the other drivers.

I just don't get it :(


 

Hope all is swell in your neck of the woods!


Paz :)
