Subject: Revenge on aggressive driver.....

Not that kind of revenge.  But good nevertheless

The backstory is this is a local tues/thurs roadie ride that has been buzzed by a white mercedes on several occasions.  I've never done this ride, but ride that road often, and it's stupid wide, smack dab in the middle of L.A.  No need whatsoever to drive close to cyclists.

The driver buzzed the wrong group, cuz someone has connections

the revenge part of me wished that they caught him in the act and ticketed him appropriately.

but perhaps the stern warning of "we know who you are and we're watching you" would have a more constructive effect.  that of just getting him to stop harassing the cyclist and to drive safely.

 

yay!  our team won this little battle.

Pre-emptive strike.  Well played.

One less threat, hopefully, on the road.  Good to hear.

Great outcome. And entertaining to think about who the WPPYCWTFW might be.

Great story.

Now if Mr. "hat" actually ever harms someone, the injured party will have great ammo for the lawsuit.
