Can't believe she thought pulling in front of him was OK.

Pissed

She said she went to the left of the center lane? Whatever, try almost all the way to the left side of the road. Mirror driving.

She may be a nice lady, but she can't lie worth a crap. It sounds as though she almost admits to causing it in her statement. Ridiculous.

Here's what I'm thinking she needs:

If he doesn't have a civil trial for damages planned, I would love to contribute to a fund to help him hire the best guy in Atlanta. Bankrupting that old liar would be a nice start.

She has definitely coached on what to say... She should have been coached to keep her mouth shut.

This is why I am always reluctant to pass unless I get waved around or the car moves to the right as "permission".

All the thoughts that I would like to put down about this deal are slowly turning into a mob inside my head.

So in the interest of not just verbally throwing up on this woman I will divert.

I hate this for the Kid, since He is a bike guy, He will most likely push beyond this and wow all of us one day, being able to ride again.

If anyone finds out who He is, can we make his info available to those who might teach out to him with encouragement? That is the most constructive thing I have.

PS. She should NEVER be allowed to drive again. Period!

Yep, its frustrating to get trapped behind slow traffic, but the risk of a pass with whack jobs like that one around isn't worth it.

Fuck that lady. I hope she burns. She is that self-righteous old hag that polices the roads, as if her opinion on the world is the only correct one.

Same ideal as the left lane campers, who refuse to move over. It is their duty to slow down speeders.

Yeah, we were talking about that on a local forum and the fact that happened near by here in Fayette County definitely hits home. There aren't a ton of dirt roads in Fayette County.

It is amazing watching that video she still thinks she did nothing wrong! I would definitely love to give that guy some encouragement too.

A few of us were riding past the Springer Mtn. parking lot last year...we came upon a carload of hikers...as we proceeded to pass the car on the left..One at a time,
First bike eases by, no issue, however as the 2nd bike started by the car moved left alittle...3rd bike car moves alittle more to the left squeezing theider over, then back to center...as I started by I knew they would do it again so was expecting it....
Sure enough as I got to the rear bumper...here they came..I wicked it alittle and was up to the driver door...looked over they thought it was funny...now we are almost to the edge of the road I got a couple branches to the helmet..and got on by....
IT was almost IMPOSSIBLE to Not ROOST Their ass....but I didn't...I just clicked it up a gear and moved on down the road...

I just couldn't see being that guy who Roosted out their grill, hood & windshield, but now on further reflection, I should have.
