    Seems to be a marked increase in lunacy on the roads in the past few weeks.

    Some riders do not understand physics. A bike with rider sitting on it having a total weight of well under 500# vs a car with passengers weighing near on 3000# trying to occupy the same space at the same time.

    Which vehicle is going to win? Who is going to get the ambulance ride?

      Nor do riders appreciate that some car drivers (closet physicists?) are well aware of who will “win”, and I have heard, and read comments about how they will not yield to avoid a collision with the crazy riders and will swerve to knock them off their bikes. I bet it has been done more than we would like to admit. Sounds like a direct death threat to me. Seek help.
