I almost got hit this morning by a guy in a truck. He rolled through a stop sign while on his cellphone as I pedaled through with the right-of-way. I clinched my brakes and screamed at him with just enough time and coherency to slap the back of his tail-light. He stopped, looked at me, then in a cowardly moment punched the gas and squealed his tires as he fled from any conflict.

I was steaming mad. But what was the most frustrating is that he looked me in the eye and drove away. He knew he had done something stupid but didn't have the decency to apologize.

Oh well. I guess it happens occasionally. It's just ridiculous that people drive with such a lack of awareness.

Get out there... but be careful.
