Do you have the statistical data that proves yer point? Have you done all the traffic studies? Are you yerself a traffic engineer?

(PS, IT'S THE SAME THING THEY DO, only it's them on the receiving end)
Every time you do something like that, you up the stakes for the rest of that encounter or the offending driver's next one. Eventually, someone on a bike is going to get hurt. Simple!
