New member forrestgump has expressed an interest in "bad drivers" so I think it is appropriate to resurrect a 2 year old topic for them. It appears to be closed but if FG is interested it is still accessible with a CIHbaddrivers/cyclists/pedestrians search. This is the original post.

We all have encountered bad drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. Some of us may be bad drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians and be unaware of it. I would love to hear your stories I have been driving for 49 years (10+ commercial). I have far to many stories to tell and "the hits just keep on coming". Sometimes literally.

I've been driving for nearly 43 years.   At this point, I just assume that everyone who does stupid/dangerous things on the road is either lost or a new driver.   As false as this might be, it helps me retain my sanity and keep my blood pressure down.   Usually.

Disapprove....*I* recall this thread - and I recall not liking some of the others' opinions as they were wrong and just did not really consider us cyclists and, in fact, were rude to us.
Are we going there again, ya bunch of vehicular homocidecal maniacs?

That's us!!!



I know you are one of the 90% of cyclists who are not a problem. I see good cyclists every day. They make me smile then I immediately forget about them. It is the 10% of cyclists who are a problem like this one that really pizz me off! I remember them! Last May 3 elementary school kids (about 10 y/o) were walking on the sidewalk. A "Lance wanna be" adult cyclist going full speed in the center of the sidewalk forced them off the walk. 2 of them ended up (you guessed it) in the BIKE LANE!

One thing that I noticed in NYC, most drivers will actually stop for walkers.  In my city, a great deal of drivers are only looking for other cars.  I refuse to think that a red light is going to stop a non-looking driver who is turning.  Said red light means pause for some.  I have been a driver for 32 years (2/3 of my life).  I ride on the sidewalk as much as possible because the bike lane is a farce! I do jump off the sidewalk (on the grass if need be) and/or my bike for walkers.

Once a car passed us in the turning lane. Then it got behind a Pontiac Grand Am that was going the speed limit and this Fusion (the car that passed us) could not STAND to be behind it.

Mac: Where have I heard that before?...
