I just got home from the university gym which I ride my bike to because being a poor college student, gas is out of my budget range. As I ride home (I ride on the road because there is no sidewalk) today as I make a left turn and signal as such, some jerk off gets right behind me and lays on his horn. I'm in the middle of the intersection at this point with no traffic approaching so I flip him off because he scared the shit out of me and what does he do?! He turns extra wide nearly running me over and almost sideswiping me! I'm even shaking as I right this!
I didn't do anything wrong! I could've done without the bird but honestly, why can't people drive safely?! I know better than most the consequences of road rage and aggressive driving but that's another story for another time.
Please, if you drive, drive defensively. Give pedestrians and cyclists the right of way. There's no excuse for not being careful.
