Sounds like a gag from a slapstick movie, but no, this is real life. A woman was hit by a car, fell off her bike scraping her chin. Then, she was yelled at by the senseless driver. Then, in retaliation, she smeared blood on his window which prompted this man to get out of his car and punch the five foot tall bicyclist twice in the face. An eye for an eye.
So, not only this guy driving his war tank hits a cyclist, (and let’s face it, a bike is just a bunch of metal sticks) he also assaulted an injured woman instead of giving her assistance. That’s just great.
But don’t worry! She got this asshole’s license number! And she gave it to the police!
It’s been a week and nothing happened, according to Animal.
I just got into the biking game and it’s fucking terrifying to ride in the city. I mostly ride around Brooklyn, so I guess my chances of winding up at the morgue are a little smaller. I can’t just pin this on drivers though, since there’s a shit ton of irresponsible cyclists out there. Wear your fucking helmet, moron! Pay attention to traffic lights! Remember that they are protected by air bags and a metal case, you’re not.
Still, I want to know what’s the story with this maniac and I hope this girl, who has two black eyes and a broken nose, gets some sort of justice. We’re rooting for you.
