Sharing the road

Share the road.

The mantra of bicyclists. However, some of them don't seem to
understand that sharing the road means not sideswiping cars. Many
mornings I see a guy riding down VFW Parkway in his recumbent bike,
complete with safety gadgets and side mirrors. Well, this morning he
sideswiped my car while I was stopped at a light. A few minutes later,
I saw him do this to another car (I'd since changed lanes). I don't
imagine that he'd like it if the driver of a car did that to him.

Sharing the road means respecting the other cars,
which I know can be a hard concept for people in Massachusetts to
grasp sometimes, even if they're not piloting something with four
