Re: “We're taking John Kass's bike bullying seriously

I am so fed up with what i am seeing from bikers today. I have done my fair share of biking and know its a challenge, but everybody and their brother are out now. I am starting to think they need to have a state permit and rules of the road test. I own a BMW drive slow have not had a ticket in over 20 years do not use phone when at wheel. I am noticing casual bike riders obey the road laws more then the avid warriors! The other day crossing where a path intersects with a cross road and which I am very aware as it is a daily route. A female biker blows the path stop and slams on brake last minute tire in my lane. I have come to a stop as I saw her coming at last minute as she is going fast my window even with her. She goes into bike rage mode she had on the best of everything money can buy guessing a tri-athlete. She is yelling at me so I roll down the window and tell her the stop line is way back and she needs to pay attention. She goes into a Dee off of Sunny in Philadelphia with testosterone. Here comes another biker who gets involved and commences to tell me to slow down. I informed him I was slow as she would have been hit if I was not. Now this guy did not see a thing but yea he is all over me screaming saying call the cops,I told him please do as she had the stop sign. I drove off shaking my head. Cyclists are becoming scary people. many are out relieving their stress they think they are invincible and they are putting good drivers in bad situations. They tend to forget a car or truck are a bit larger and you see the arrogance and stupidity of these cyclists every day. Many are overdoing distance look like they are going to faint and pass out on the road. Usually the cyclists with the best gear. Getting to be to many out riding at once. Like the deer in your blind spot darting here and there testing luck its dangerous please evaluate your biking skills and understand your capacity reflexes pick your sport accordingly Many of you might not pass a drivers test on a bike. Honestly most of these bikers are bad drivers check their records. LOL
