Riding into work this morning seemed like any other day and it was.... except for one pupule driver almost ending my day before it even got started.
It started off feeling pretty good - the sun was making it's way out, the air was nice and cold and bonus, I caught all the greens at the traffic lights. I get on the on-ramp at the Sears Distribution center in Pearl City (it's a nice right hand turn when you're on a bike) then as I was straightening out, a newer model Mercedes cuts right in front of me - with about three feet to spare - crossing two lanes to get to the shoulder lane. Did I mention it he crossed a SOLID LINE?!
Seriously, is it that urgent to get to the shoulder lane with such haste? The next off ramp is at Aiea and that is hellah far away plus he didn't show any signs of having car trouble. On top of that traffic was really flowing because of Spring Break and it was nowhere near the usual morning commuting level.
I normally watch for these lolo's as I see drivers take that illegal turn everyday but they normally do it when the lanes are next to each other or as soon as they are able to clearly see the merging lane but this guy made his move right at edge of the "triangle" part where there's still dirt and it wasn't even paved yet!
Of course I gun it ride right along side of him on his drivers side and indicate to him he crossed a solid line and da buggah with his neatly trimmed hair and crisply pressed pastel shirt actually shakes his head at me!
Wassap Wit Dat!
Drive safe everybodies.... cause it's one thing to drive a $70k car but it ain't worth squat if you wreck it.
