Twice, I have had riders on bikes with loud pipes not realize I was right next to them (in the other lane) in my car, and start to change lanes into me. They couldn't hear a fucking thing and they weren't looking either. One guy didn't have any helmet on at all so not like he could blame "restricted vision". Since in both cases I had come up from behind them, I already saw them without need for the stoopit pipes.
