The Insanity of Impatience
Anyone who’s spent time on the roads (driving any kind of vehicle) has witnessed the insanity of impatient drivers. Saturday, Andy Cline shared a crazy-driver story from his driving trip to Delaware. Being slow, we cyclists are probably treated to their stupid antics more than others. My friends and I were fortunate to have a deputy witness one dingbat driver last fall.
This video caught one of the most reckless things I’ve seen. And from a commercial driver, no less!
While this behavior is exceptionally over-the-top, it is fed by the prevailing cultural mindset that individual motorists are entitled to travel at maximum speed and not be inconvenienced by anything or anyone (including other motorists, but especially inferior bicyclists) that might delay them.
What is it going to take to change that?
