To the editor:

Fabulous and helpful recent letter to the editor from Clancy Wolf “Lets move past us versus them” regarding all of us using the roadways together. Contrastingly, I experienced a Chilly Hilly bully this morning as I drove only 10 to 15 mph, he intentionally veered across the center line and we nearly collided in his effort to make me stop even though no bikes were anywhere close.

It appears he was angered by my driving at all, no matter how carefully, during the Chilly Hilly.

This vehicular assault by a bully who thinks he was protecting bike riders is precisely the bad us-versus-them behavior that islanders need to stop doing to each other.

I was being super careful; just trying to go buy some needed groceries.

His aggression gives the bike community a bad image; I’m sure most bikers abhor such behavior.
