I agree with many of the posters here. Just because you have the right of way doesn't mean you should insist upon it. Especially when tonnage rules.
” Luckily the dog didn’t continue with the attack and ran off. “
Probably snickering behind its whiskers, “Hey look what I did to that goofy human.”
Dogs are like that regardless of breed.
On my road it’s a beagle.
Riding along and next thing you know you have a beagle on you.
One road over it’s a bluebird that nails you.
I avoid that road.
Was driving with my then boyfriend when a dog ran out in the road and was barking at my car. I veered to try to miss it but almost went off the road in the process. My boyfriend said to me “if the dog wants to commit suicide then let him but don’t wreck your car over a dog”.
He is correct and since then I keep my eyes on the road and drive strait ahead. Not going to wreck my car for a dog or a person on a bicycle but if they hit me it’s their fault.
