On a personal and closer to home thought, I got an hour ride in today, but was mirror tagged by some nut job driving a Cadillac Escalade ... I was riding in the *berm* and still got tagged. It wasn't hard, and I didn't even lose my balance, but it was enough to fold in her mirror. This was a stretch of road that is 45 mph and I was trucking along somewhere near 18 mph, so lucky for both us, it could have been worse.
I got a bit of satisfaction when she had to stop at a light, I caught up to her and knocked on her window, she was like a deer in the headlights ...it was strange, no facial expression, didn't even speak. I told her to be more careful and went on with my ride. The driver in front of her offered to be a witness and said the word "Ridiculous!", ust have seen it in his rear view. I actually hope she was mortified at what she had done and just didn't know how to deal with it ... this could have been way worse.
