My favorite stupid stupid-driver move, again today!

Speeding S-10 (truck) came up along my right knee and passed me in a one lane street.
Had a little chat with the driver at the next light. And the next stop sign. And the next light.
35mph divided blvd, one lane each side - I was riding the speed limit.
Earlier today, I snapped this photo of the same street while heading downtown.



Anyway....other than that it was a nice sunrise ride for coffee.
Hotel downtown, across from the fountain...






And another sunrise...


Still a little peeved...O.S.

Happy to hear ďpeevedĒ is all you are......


You state you were going the speed limit, car drivers donít care, they just have to be in front of the Ďmopedí. Iím regularly passed even if Iím exceeding the speed limit. I had an incident several years ago, I was going about 50-55 mph in an area posted at 35 mph and someone actually bumped me hollering out his window that I was a f%#*ín slowpoke and should get off the road.

Just let it go. Don't let it spoil your day. Don't take a chance of getting shot at the third light.

You Can Not Fix Stupid Drivers
Thanks for the photos. Please do not do battle with a 1 ton vehicle.
I care about your safety - not that twit.

I try to ride like the Mahatma Gandhi. Under my breath, I swear like a sailor.
