Hora...Strangely on both occassions the drivers wanted to get to the redlight c10m's ahead before I did. Neither wanted to get out of their warm cars to taste blood and snow. Sorry, it makes me bloody angry as I could easily in both situations be the one with a broken jaw/wrist etc laying in the snow. I wonder if they'd stop? Hence its not disproportionate to offer a beating to them.
It doesn't sound like you are worried about your safety, more like you are looking for a fight. Hmmmm, that was a near miss, lets go and make a personal attack on the driver and give him another chance to put me on the floor. People like you is why many consider cyclists to be arrogant and aggressive.
I'd like to see what happens when you make a poor choice and pass a cyclist a bit too close, then they come hammering on your window at the next set of lights. Either you'd wimp out and check the door was locked, or there would be blood on the floor and everyone thinking what idiots you both are.
