OC would prevent that!

Yeah. “harassing” you or your interpretation of “attempt to use their car as weapon” will land you in prison when you pull your gun.



Speeding is not wreckless driving and you couldn’t prove they were going 50 anyways in a 35 zone. Regradless if they pass you at 25, 35, or 45, or 75mphm, 3 feet away (this being 3 to 4 inches further away from an average mans arm length) you are going to feel slighted even though you yourself have brought up the law.

I have seen your type riding bikes. We have problems with bicyclist riding two or three abreast in the canyons where single file is the law and blocking traffic. We have hoards of bikers that ride 3 or 4 abreast where the shoulders are 10 feet wide and two of the bikes are in the traffic lane when they could be out of traffic. They dress up like they are in the tour de france and think that they should block the road.

When they do this, they forget they must follow the law:

(6) (a) PERSONS RIDING BICYCLES UPON A ROADWAY SHALL NOT RIDE MORE THAN TWO ABREAST EXCEPT ON PATHS OR PARTS OF ROADWAYS SET ASIDE FOR THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF BICYCLES.
(b) PERSONS RIDING BICYCLES TWO ABREAST SHALL NOT IMPEDE THE NORMAL AND REASONABLE MOVEMENT OF TRAFFIC AND, ON A LANED ROADWAY, SHALL RIDE WITHIN A SINGLE LANE.

And lets not forget that bicycles must ride like this in the state I live:

(I) IF THE RIGHT-HAND LANE THEN AVAILABLE FOR TRAFFIC IS WIDE ENOUGH TO BE SAFELY SHARED WITH OVERTAKING VEHICLES, A BICYCLIST SHALL RIDE FAR ENOUGH TO THE RIGHT AS JUDGED SAFE BY THE BICYCLIST TO FACILITATE THE MOVEMENT OF SUCH OVERTAKING VEHICLES UNLESS OTHER CONDITIONS MAKE IT UNSAFE TO DO SO.

When bicycles impede traffic and do not follow the law, they do make people mad.
You obviously have some serious issues with cyclists. I suggest therapy. Or a bike ride.

Lord Dana has a lot of issues with common people. Ask him how much money he has, or just stick around. He'll find a reason to tell you.

I do ride a bike. I just do it in a legal manner and within the traffic laws.

I have the same issue with car drivers who impede traffic and can obey "keep right except to pass laws".

I also have issue with what I believe are donkeys who claim the are going to shoot someone because a car is too close to them and being used as a weapon. I also have problems with socialists who think society owes them more money than they ever made in their life. I have issues with OC activists acting stupid just as I have issues with bicycle activists acting stupid.

I have issues with people who claim we should follow the European model for bicycle use but dont but then are too ignorant to even know what the basic sign and bicycle rules are in the model they want to follow.

No, I have issues with people who expect me to work to pay for their needs. IF you never earned $1M in your life, you sure shouldnt expect other to pay for $1M in medical bills for you.

See Rupert. He found a reason to brag about his wealth again. That's how he got so many posts. Everyone bow down to Lord Dana. We're all so unworthy.

It opposite, you just have reading comprehension issues. I said I dont like people who expect society to pay their bills for them. That has nothing to do with how much money I do or dont have.

I dont like leeches. That has nothing to do with how much blood I do or do not have or whether the leech sucks my blood or someone else's blood. I simply dont like leeches in any manner.

I dont like communists either.

Automobiles should be abolished and we should all go back to the days of the horse and buckboard. Then everybody would really have a back problem and not be just a bunch of drug seekers. Of course, that wouldn't matter because there would no longer be a need for ER's without the luxury of cars.

Yes, cars and bikes mix well in europe....

Interesting that the "extreme cyclist" is the one that was killed. I wonder if she was obeying the traffic laws of the host country? I guess one less in Boulder riding like this.
