Default SW 19th & Jefferson

I was on my way downhill on SW 19th, getting ready to cross SW Jefferson to get to the Goose Hollow Max Station. A low rider, matte black Honda Civic with a large spoiler came speeding around the corner from SW Salmon and had to hit his breaks so quickly upon seeing me that his car fishtailed. He couldn't stop in time, so he made the corner onto SW 19th, going so fast that his tires squealed as he took the corner. As soon as he made it around the corner he hit the gas again and sped up the hill.

To add insult to injury I missed my MAX because of this! I'm pumped full of adrenaline right now, and shaking like a leaf.
