As a keen motorbiker i have this sort of problem a lot.
Two flavours, those that never think of motorbikes being on the road and cut us up accidentally (the ignorance you speak of) and those that see you
coming, taking advantage of your small size to fit through gaps in stationary traffic and block you because its "not fair".
Well by the same reasoning i should be allowed to pour water into peoples cars because its not fair they are dry and im wet in the rain. no?
A classic is people on a roundabout wanting to turn right, so in the right hand lane, but because they want to ground the corner just that bit faster
and smoother they drift into the left lane to take a less aggressive turn, right into the side of my bike (and leg). Many times i have wanted to
chase them down and rip off a wing mirror, so far i have contained my own inner rage, defiant to avoid falling into the same or similar category.
Sadly many incidents are just a matter of courtesy rather than road law and tainted people with a god complex are unpunished for their, frankly
selfish and arrogant, road rage.
Ya pay your money, you takes ya chances. Be cool and not a jealous d-bag, if you want to get to work on time and you always cue in traffic, leave
earlier, its not rocket surgery!
Also quickedit: Akira is a great movie!
