I dunno. The delivery guys may not have had any money or very little. When I drove and delivered in the hard parts of town in Baltimore back in the day, the company policy was we carry no money or wear anything that might make us a target. Shreveport definitely has some hard parts. And a beer truck would definitely be a potential target.

But you are right cyclists get no respect in a nation that seems fixated on the idea that size matters. “I am in my car. And though I am only 4′ tall, this 2 ton machine makes me strong like Arnold. Out of my way you puny human.”

I am puzzled why the perception of someone else’s vulnerbilty causes many to feel they have a right to take advantage of it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
