Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon? Tonight I was riding home (in the pouring rain). I made a left turn into a side road and before I knew it a motorist almost killed me, well it felt like that. He was also turning into the side road from the other direction (a right turn). He pulled over after overtaking me and approached calling me all the names under the sun. I'm a f*****g c**t, a stupid sl*g, a stupid sl*t etc etc. Those are the ones I remember anyway. He was insisting I should have given way for him and let him turn first. I explained to him that I had right of way but he wasn't interested. He told me that if there weren't cameras in the vicinity he would punch me in the face. I thanked him for his comments and he got back in his car and drove off. I was absolutely terrified. Incidents like this only seem to happen to me in the run-up to Christmas. I can remember two others where both the drivers got out of their vehicles and threatened me with violence for no other reason than my just being there. Both happened in the run-up to Christmas. I've had a rotten couple of weeks at work and feel like resigning and now this. I have to admit when I got home I cried. I feel really abused from all quarters and really down.
