    Yes, is seems like he was a loose cannon just waiting for that tipping point.

    I sure hope at the very least that this guy gets his bank account cleaned out when the civil suit comes up.

    Majority of A-holes who behave aggressively towards cyclist are pick up drivers. I know that is my personal experience. The same A-holes who voted for our orange.....nevermind.

    I find it to be cars/drivers on the opposite end of the spectrum; those who own and drive white "luxury" sedans, especially those originating in Germany (BMW, MB, Audi). Maybe it's a regional thing? Don't think it matters for whom they voted, jerkoffs are jerkoffs.

    Double-wide SUVs are almost up there with jacked up pickup drivers. And in my area, there are way more of them!

    It does seem that the more expensive the vehicle, be it an Audi, Dodge RAM, Dodge Challenger or Ford Excursion, the more the driver feels entitled to the whole road. That is not to say that I haven't been hassled by a jerk in an old beat up rice burner, but the numbers are leaning towards the claim made in my opening sentence.
    Life is short... enjoy the ride.

    yeah, must be. I've done a lot of riding in Quebec (Eastern Townships) and my anecdotal observation is that pick up drivers are exceptionally courteous to cyclists. Not so much in New Hampshire though. Plenty of jerks in pickups.

    My experience has been different. To me, it seems like the larger the vehicle, the more space the driver feels entitled to. Of course, to be fair, it's a lot easier for a tiny car to pass safely without going into the opposing lane.

    My worst road rage incident was with a middle aged lady in a Prius with a Hillary 16 sticker.

    Eh, that was probably the second worst. The worst was a dude in a rusted pickup, with his 4-5 year old son in the front seat.
    I like to ride fast.

    Please will someone in Ontario or Canada keep us updated on this assault after the police review and then the court decision.

    If I had been there as a bystander, I would have grabbed the guy on the shoulders and tipped him back onto the ground, put my knee on his chest, and told the bystanders to call 911.

    Nobody should get away with this sh!t, then jump in his vehicle and drive off.
    Amen.


    See his arm/forearm/hand holding the cyclist? That means he has one less arm/hand while the cyclist still has two.

    I would literally eat that fvcker's forearm for lunch .

    Clamp down on the meatiest part and don't stop until both upper and lower teeth touch (As prescribed by Krav Maga).


    Thee stupidest thing a perp can do is hold you. That means you're well within arm-range of him and he/she has one less hand/arm.


    Personally; I go for the clavicle, both, hopefully if I'm up close and personal.

    It only take about 8 to 12lbs of pressure to break it. And then just yank the affected arm and shear pain will commence.

    You can say that again. And a large population of cyclists w/ no regard for the HTA. I'm surprised nothing like the Ottawa cyclist has happened here (I live about 45 minutes north).

    True. Mind you the 'visitors' to cottage country that drive those brands seem to be entitled jerks w/ poor reading skills. 'No Parking' is incomprehensible to them.

    As a cyclist AND a pickup driver I try to give cyclists a wide berth. A lot of them don't pay particular attention to what they're doing. Wobbling along along & changing lanes and/or direction w/o the slightest attempt of signalling their intentions or if it's safe to do so.

    Sounds more redneck viewpoint than cyclist.

    Wife of man accused of vicious cyclist beating in Peterborough says 'it's not what it looks like at all'

    “I’ll tell you one thing, it’s not what it looks like at all,” said Fox’s wife, Sandra, outside her house, when approached by the Star. “All everybody caught was the last two minutes of it, not how it started or why it started.”
