RAGE!

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 19

 

Comm. Ave. numskull in a car thinks the bike lane goes away when it snows….it doesn’t.

Keep calm and carry on people, don’t be like this guy. The advent of tiny cameras is going to revolutionize traffic incidents in court. Russia had a spate of people throwing themselves against parked cars and then claiming they were hit, so now “dash cams” are very popular there (all those crazy videos on the internet are almost all from Russia), I hope that all cyclists start riding around with cameras so that things like this can be documented and reported.

Share the road, all the time, even in the snow. Bikes have the full legal right to use the entire lane, it doesn’t suddenly become legal to be a jerk just because its cold out. I have noticed that many people when in the wrong will substitute “Im sorry, I should have been paying attention.” for “FUCK YOU ASSHOLE!”

Also love the accents, nothing says “Boston” like two guys screaming at each other in the snow with accents. FAHCK YOU! NAH FAHCK YOU! WICKED! FAHCK!

Thanks Greg for the tip on the video.

    You cut off the end of the video – you know, the part where you smash his side window with your U-lock.

    “you know, the part where you smash his side window with your U-lock.” That is not funny. A cyclist was arrested in Brookline, on December 16th for smashing the window of a car with a u-lock, after the driver of the car passed the cyclist on Washington Street, Brookline, a street, that I am guessing was narrowed due to the recent snowfall, passed the cyclist, “who was in the middle of the road”, quoth the car driver, pulled in, too close perhaps?, and stopped soon thereafter at the stoplight.
    My suggestion for any road rage that you may have as a cyclist is to use an air-zounds air horn. That is the language that car drivers understand.

    Saw a news piece on this that suggested the guy in the car is a judge? Anyone on that?

    Word is that dude in the video is a judge. Did anyone confirm that?
