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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
