Angry Z O O M 44

Was riding home tonight 5/30/8, NB on Hwy 217. Had just got past the 2nd Hall Street bridge (the one between Greenburg and 99W) where the shoulder is really narrow, was passed by this asshat.

He was too close, and just to be the shit he was, he honked his horn to startle me (successful). For the briefest second, I thought that his passenger was going to throw something at me, or slap me as he passed... yeah, he was THAT close.

Dumbshit forgot that he has a personalized plate ZOOM 44 on his silver corvette?. He's now on "The Watch List...".

Be Careful Out There!

Wouldn't it be nice if all license plates were so easy to read and remember. Do you know if a passenger yelling out the window to startle a cyclist would be in violation of the law?






Being careful out there.... if only it could be that simple.
