Since I have to drive right through that intersection...

...and I KNOW he remembers me, is there anyone here who can rustle up bail money? I think I'm going to be spending the night downtown...

If 10 people call you a you may be a . If 100 call you one you can no longer deny it. That is in denial! Only a would eat up this much bad publicity. I bet his wife makes him play dress up. I bet he dresses up and watches the action from the corner drooling for nut sack in his mouth.

Speaking from experience - I was driving home in my car at about 1 am a few weeks ago, heading back to the north side of town after hanging out with some friends in Pearland. I was on the HWY approaching downtown where is necks down to go onto the Pierce Elevated and I heard some pretty loud exhaust in the distance, didn't see anything. It alerted me to slow down and watch out and hold off on any sudden lane changes. Sure enough, the pipes got louder and louder and 4 bikes whizzed past me going 100+ mph. They had probably been more than a mile away when I first heard them.
Some here do not agree. I estimate about 70% can hear a bike behind us or in our blind spot. It seems that 30% cannot.

Yup. Personally speaking - as a rider I'm glad to have any additional indication of bikes nearby when I'm in the car. I can only hope and pray other drivers have a similar mentality when I'm on 2 wheels.
