It is good to be on guard at all times and keep reminding yourself that you are invisible to most. I was feeling relaxed on the highway coming thru south Seattle on hwy 99 ... Sunny afternoon 2 pm, no rain, dry roads, wearing hi brake visibility jacket and helmet, with LED driving lights on the front, reflective tape on panniers, extra red led tail lights And extra hyper lights. I am in right hand lane doing 63 and keeping up with traffic. Along comes a Honda Accord on my left passes me, well almost and decides to change lanes into me. WTF. I hit brakes and go to shoulder and he misses me. He makes no attempt to get back in his lane even with horn blasting.

I decide to get a better look and give him a salute as I pass by and get away from him. I was ready to put my foot in the door but decided at 60 mph not a good idea. It seemed he was busy explaining why he almost ran me off the road to his passengers.
