It’s been just over a year since I posted, “Wanted: your close calls.” Since then, 226 of you have reported the details of your harrowing experiences.
I read all of them and every once in a while one will catch my eye. Like this one,
“I was riding my bike along Skyline when a gold convertible Lamborghini came speeding around a bend, veering over the double yellow lines into my lane of traffic. I had to jump off of my bike into the ditch to avoid the possibility of being hit. I pointed at him, speechless, from adrenaline, hoping he would notice what had just happened from his rear view mirror. He then came to a screeching stop in the middle of the road, made a u-turn, revved his engine and headed straight for me, fully speeding. I had to run up the side of the ditch carrying my bike to avoid him. He turned down Skyline Heights Rd into the Forest Heights neighborhood…There were many cyclists on Skyline that day, as there are most days, but I’m unsure if any witnessed this guy wrecklessly driving as I did. How many gold convertible Lamborghinis can there possibly be in Portland?”
The cyclist did call the police non-emergency number, but was not happy with the outcome.
If anyone sees this gold convertible Lamborghini, please jot down the license plate number and call (503) 823-3333.
