Scooter in the bicycle lane

Oooh this one really irritated me…

One time I was riding my bike home and I noticed a motorized scooter traveling on the road. Mind you, I’m in the bike lane and he’s on the car lane. The car lane suddenly hits traffic, then the knuckle head jumps on to the bicycle lane!

This picture was the best I could find that depicted my story. Obviously I wasn’t in India when this happend.

He kept going in and out of the bicycle lane when ever it was convenient for him. I started getting really mad so I tried my best to chase him down on my fixie. But I couldn’t since he was going up to 40 mph. Oh man, if I had caught up with that dude, I would yelled at him to get off my lane!

Yeah I know it’s not a good idea to be Mr. Confrontational, but this dude really ticked me off.

What would you have done, if you had caught up to him?

    Happens all the time here in the Bay Area. Here’s a photo I took from my bike showing at least 3 motorcyclists in the bike lane up in San Francisco.

    The truth, I don’t mind them so much as long as they are going in THE SAME direction that I’m going. It is those pesky joggers and other cyclists riding the bike lanes the WRONG way that really tick me off.
