"Hahaha... I do that too. It's called "getting in the last word", and I like to think it keeps a motorist from thinking he won the argument. (Am I being too hostile? ^_^ )
The space requirement was a little bit of an issue as my bike…"
"Mike (and others),
Have you considered an air horn (EXAMPLE)? I have one of these; it's louder than sh!t and has come in very handy on several occasions. Good examples are cars starting to turn right, crossing my path, and merging into my lane…"

"I encountered a young woman riding west on the east-bound bike lane on Jackson. I said only "wrong way" but got no response. I guess that's better than an epithet, but at times like this I doubt some cyclists will ever think of…"
