I understand that auto drivers don't usually look for bikers and hence accidents. But I think that there are auto drivers who are actually going out of their ways to cause you grief short of ramming you dead on. Last night I was coming back from dinner. It was a cloudy night but the street was fairly well lit plus there was opposite direction traffic coming toward me and some light traffic behind me. I was wearing this riding jacket so I knew was lit up like a Christmas tree. This car was making a right turn and it waited until I got really close to pull out. And the kicker is that the bastard pulled into my lane (left lane) instead of the right lane. So I had to hit the brakes hard. The car behind me had to swerve around to the right in order to avoid ramming me. This driver was really pissed because he pulled up to the offending car, beeping his horn and flipping the bastard off. I can't imagine somebody could be that ignorant. The SOB must have thought it was cute to see me braking hard or something. About two months ago, the same thing happened and that driver was drunk. This one didn't seem to be drunk. At the next light, I took a left and when I was pulling into the left turning lane, I eyeballed this &^^%%$# to see what's going on and the guy just sat there looking ahead. I swear I came THAT close to stopping and giving his car door the boot. As motorcycle riders, we have to deal with negligent drivers all the time and that's just the price one pays for two-wheelin', and I've heard stories of malicious drivers and usually I attributed them to wives' tales. But how else can you explain the above? Why do a slow turn into the far left lane? Why wait until the motorcycle gets close and then do a slow turn into the left lane? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
