Sad and scary to think that this is normal behaviour isn't Rob?
Have you actually had wing mirrors hit you?
Had something similar a month ago, white commodore also, but he came across into the bike lane and slammed his brakes on then sped off. Luckily I was only doing about 25 kph, so could avoid him. I just asked, 'why would you bother?' must be envious of people having fun!
Yes, sad, but true, they are out there.
I had one try to scare me on Sturt Road (heading west, just past Marion Shopping Centre, a few days ago) - a white smallish car (sorry, no good with car makes) came around the corner from Morpthett Road, saw me in the bike lane, and leaned on horn. (didn't see if male or female driver). The funny thing was that it must have been so busy looking in the rear view mirror to see my reaction (which was none), that it slammed into the median strip with a big bang and glanced off. Then it went wobbling down Sturt Road and made a quick right turn - I think it must have been embarrassed! It would definitely have done some damage to the front of the car!
It is so satisfying to see "Instant Karma" at work!
That must have felt nice.
such a rare thing, that instant karma... I'd like to see it in action more often.
Also, a reminder to watch out for broken bottles on the road, and in car parks etc.
my god... the broken glass is EVERYWHERE!!!!
practically impossible to avoid...
Went for a walk down Old Freeway bike track yesterday and cleared away a few patches of broken glass on the way down. Noticed a bit of graffiti painted on the road at The Bollards....reads "real men ride women"......Ill be packing a pot of black paint on my next walk.
I remember seeing that piece of graffiti in the 70s and asking my mum what it meant. Im still not sure she has answered.
