Near Whole Foods, there couldn’t be a more fitting place to witness this, a woman was leaving with her groceries. She was sporting a keffiyeh and a socially responsible cloth grocery bag, riding a fixed gear bike East on 6th street.
You don’t drive EAST on 6th street. It is a one-way WESTbound street.
I don’t care if you are on a bike and are better than me and my evil Dick Cheney approved SUV. One-way streets are one way streets even if you are pedaling to save the planet.
I do not care if you ride a bike. I do not care why you ride a bike. I do not care until you get in my way. I do not care until I make a left turn onto a one-way street and find you as oncoming traffic. One-way streets don’t have oncoming traffic.
Congratulations, I nearly hit another car trying not to kill you.
You are welcome.
