He flips the bird and then keeps on chuggin' away, as if he has no
care in the world.
Again, who wrong and who's right? In this case, the bicyclist
who thinks he's in the Tour de France, is wrong in all counts.
From not having a rear view mirror to putting himself into a
situation where he's covered wall to wall with automobiles.
Regardless of how right he thinks he is, there no contest between a
50lbs bicycle and a 2 ton SUV. What is hard to see, because of
the wide angle lens, is that the bicyclist started taking over the
lane right after the street light. That's way too early before
the right most lane turns into a right turn lane. If there was
a cop around, this guy would get ticketed from putting himself in
I've been told that saying, "Where's a cop when you need one..." is
a sign of collectivism or the herd mentality. Alright...
that's fine. But in this case, I say we need a cop to ticket
this guy's sorry arshe to lower his self esteem a bit. Not
only that but it might even save his life.
