VIOLENT CRIME ALERT: There is a group of people traveling at night deliberately running cyclists off the road in Ottawa, Ontario. They swerved at me shouting abuse on Friday night, and I ended up in the hospital. They were driving a silver Honda. They were spotted in Old Ottawa South last night as well victimizing a cyclist. PLEASE report ANY abuse you see to police immediately. The police did not get my information on Friday night because I was medicated and in shock. PLEASE, I need your help badly, spread the word and contact the Ottawa police IMMEDIATELY.
Not that it matters with this breed of psychotic behaviour, but I was wearing a helmet, sticking to the designated path (not even on the road, but on the designated lanes on Colonel By Drive), utilizing a legal light and reflectors, and paying full attention. I was deliberately victimized by these people, and there was no “reason” to target me, other than to make a perhaps send a message to other cyclists.
And for those of you sick enough to say “yelling at someone for no reason and swerving off the road to threaten them is NOT A CRIME”… well, I hope you get yours. If someone in another car started honking and screaming at you and swerving to force YOUR vehicle off the road, there would be a full investigation.
