Dear Divers who do not check for cyclists when turning,

Yes, you nearly right hooked me and so I yelled. I yelled because I cannot honk, I yelled to alert you to my presence as you failed to check for yourself, I yelled because I was scared, I yelled because I am angry that I was nearly struck in a preventable situation.

And you? You flipped me off.

Let's take a second to contemplate what just nearly happened... you nearly HIT ME! Which means you were inches from injuring me, maiming me, or killing me while you sat safely inside your vehicle checking how many likes your recent Instagram post has received.

But you're right, my apologies, you are entitled to drive carelessly and the digital world in your hand is vastly more important than the safety of others.
