What happened was that the guy pulled up alongside some riders who were going at the speed limit (easy on that downhill on a decent road bike) and started screaming at them. Then he pulled in front of them, cut over abruptly and slammed on his brakes. One guy went through his back window. The driver then continued to scream at the cyclists and tried to drive away until another cyclist called 911 and sat on his hood to keep him from leaving. When the police arrived, he told them that he did it to teach the cyclists a lesson. He got five years.

There are stupid bicycle riders and there are stupid car/truck drivers -- that is the bottom line.

We had a recent scandal here in Lafayette, Louisiana that DWI and OWI convictions were purged from driving record by bribing someone in the District Attorney's office (City of Lafayette).

Louisiana still has a lot of trouble with corruption -- noting the recent trouble that Mary Landrieu had with not paying her DC taxes as well as the indictments of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin...
