Comment of the Day

Reader: Both cyclists and drivers can be a**holes

Our post about two cyclists who caught a honking, bike-raging driver on video continues to collect comments, with accusatory fingers being pointed in many of them. That's true of the one below, too -- but the reader in question thinks there's plenty of blame to go around.

I've been a pedestrian since 1999 and I've got to say that both motorists and cyclists are assholes. It really doesn't matter either way -- I've been hit by both. Motorists, get off your cell phones and pay the fuck attention. Cyclists, get over your smug sense of self worth and pay attention to things that you think you're impervious to. Problem solved.
