Don’t Honk at Cyclists
Bike Snob lays into a writer who claims he honked at a cyclist to let him know that he was there.
Anyway, so what if he didn’t know you were there? He doesn’t really have to know you’re there. You have to know he’s there because you’re the one approaching from behind. So wait until it’s safe to pass him and then do so. Don’t honk at him, especially as you’re approaching a fucking stop sign. It’s irritating enough when people honk at you for no reason, but it’s quadruply annoying when they do it at a stop sign or red light, and if you want to know why sometimes we’re inclined to roll those things then there’s your fucking answer.
