Cyclists and motorists don’t always get along and for good reason. Those peddling on two wheels don’t always follow the rules of the road (nor do drivers) while those moving around on four wheels are often unobservant and blissfully unaware of cyclists around them.
The often-toxic relationship between cyclists and motorists can boil over and that’s exactly what happened recently in the U.S.
As we see so often, it starts off by showing a motorist unexpectedly swerving into the bicycle lane on the side of a road. In the process of swerving into the bike lane, the driver almost wipes out a pair of cyclists simply going about their business.
One of the cyclists screams at the driver, shouting “Come on you f**king idiot!” while the second cyclist yells “Pay attention! Pay attention!” Unfortunately for this second cyclist, he wasn’t paying as much attention as he should have either as he rear-ends the other cyclist when the rider ahead of him suddenly stopped.
Initially, it seems as if this will result in a rather awkward confrontation between the two cyclists but instead, they both turn their attentions back towards the motorist and once again remind him to stay out of the bicycle lane.
All in all, the clip serves as an important reminder to always remain vigilant while on the roads, whether you’re a cyclist or a motorist.
