various and assorted miscellany
When I was a kid I rode in the road without a care in the world. As an adult it scares the pants off of me because I know how distracted drivers can be.
this month alone i've been met with bicycles riding towards me on the road in traffic 3 different times. once, the guy was riding the wrong way in a bike lane. that was bad enough. the other 2 times the bicyclists were in the driving lane headed towards me! i had to switch lanes to avoid head-on collision with the bikes. once was on park ave just as i crossed perkins headed west. i'm still upset about it. the guy could've been killed!
This is becoming all too common. http://wp.me/p1se8R-1wT And the same fools that think they own the road aren't smart enough to do it without earplugs.
