“It was 15 against one. But John O’Brien was going to teach the group of cyclists that slowed his progress on a country road a lesson they would remember.
The 66-year-old Hamilton motorist swerved in and out in front of the cyclists, causing them to brake and turn. His actions on Sept. 19, 2009, also nearly forced two oncoming cars on Twenty Road near the Binbrook Conservation Authority into a ditch.” – Hamilton Spectator June 29 2012 – link to article
Un-fricking-Real. I’ve heard so many stories about motorists trying to use their vehicles to teach a cyclist a lesson. I like the fact that this driver got his license suspended for 2 years, but he should be charged with attempted murder.
Reminds me of previous posts:
- A Grand River Transit driver tried to teach me a lesson with his bus.
- This driver ran two of my friends off the road actually hitting one of them.
I’m sure there are others!
Any readers who have a minor in Law: Why aren’t drivers charged with attempted murder in these situations?
