    They were so quick it kinda caught me off-guard. I wish I woulda got the offending officer's name so it could be entered on the CCDB report. Yes, due to previous experience with CHP I expected more of that wonderful anti-cycling attitude, but got none...thanks to irrefutable evidence on You Tube .

    That idiot from the Union Tribune must be out and about on the wide bike lanes/extra long car passing and turning lanes up in Mira Mesa.

    We fight for better bike lanes and cagers just take them. That's a disturbing trend all over.

    With a little effort, it should be possible to make the bike lanes impassable by cars, e.g the occasional island with a narrow passage for bikes.

    Report on CCB to come soon but BOLO for a White 2 door Toyota Pickup with CA Plates 39449K1. He threatened my life today on Santa Fe in front of House of Scuba. Honked at me and failed to pass safely, then tried to run me off the road. He sped away once he realized I had my phone out. Extremely dangerous. It was straight up assualt and attempted murder with a motor vehicle as a weapon as far as I'm concerned. Call SDPD if you see him or know anything about him. He might live in the RV/trailer park.

    I use this road daily as part of my commute always riding with lights, high viz gear, my panniers and taking the lane. There's aways the occasional close passer or honker but I've never had anything this bad happen.

    fjl307, in your CCB report, you say that you saw an orange object with black handles in the passenger seat. Could it be something like this? (with black handles, obviously)



    That sounds like something that a construction worker would have with him, i.e. possibly one of the workers on the railroad/trolley project in the area.

    Good thinking Shady. I see comments from others regarding the construction workers. If substantiated we could bring the issue to the contactors MCTC and demand they control their workers.

    Speaking of MCTC workers, this street sweeper I believe could have seen it all from a distance away. I was unable to flag him down though. I've tried reaching out to a few people at the project to see if they can identify that worker as his statement would be valuable. Ironically, you can see a bicycle in the bed of his pickup and further down the road SDG&E was working on a utility pole and traffic control was out and had a lane closed. So if the scumbag driver thinks I was the one slowing him down, he's mistaken he had to wait with his vehicle completely stopped.

    Looks like either a funky tool box, or a portable generator.

    I vote for generator too.

    That's also one of the most stolen items from construction sites so most likely to be in the cabin not on the bed.

    Generator is a good possibility.


    Finally got a chance to drop off my written report and photos to SDPD following Seth Davidson's procedure. I think it was received well, at least there's a badge number and name from the Officer who took the report and a case number.

    Reported on Facebook:

    Porsche

    Grey Porsche- CA. License Plate 5TET392

    In RSF has a problem with cyclists. So much so he said he "better not see me riding in this area." and that "You can't ride here." I informed him he was being filmed and soon after he sped off. Please share! — in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

    Maybe:

    Porsche Drivers

    What's the difference between a PORSCHE and a PORCUPINE?

    Nothing happened but it sure made me nervous. Ford F-250 with AZ plates on Santa Fe street, not too far from where my earlier incident with the white Tacoma happened. Driver changes lanes to pass and then just hangs out in the lane for several seconds next to me. Right tires were on the double yellow lines while I was riding over the sharrows. There was a car coming up behind us and I waved for him to keep going and he did. Older man, hoping he's just in for the long weekend and not a regular on this route.

    BOLO anyways... he could live in the RV park too.

    Another one on Santa Fe.

    Someone on the CCDB Strava page claims to have seen the same driver. If you have seen them as well please step up and make a report. PM me and I can get you in contact with the SDPD officer reviewing the video.
