Friday meditation: Confronting the Cars

Stumbled upon this interesting piece about breaking through the insular barrier that cars create for their occupants and actually talking to drivers.

I'm not nice enough to pull this off. I think I have a great deal of pent up rage towards the many, many incompetent drivers I have encountered over the years, not on a bike, but in another vehicle. Road rage is neither attractive nor healthy, though, so I suppose it'd be better to simply accept that the vast majority of people will never be good drivers, and move on.

Is it that simple? I'm not so sure. Still, there's definitely something to be said to improving driver-cyclist relations.
