I’m writing this letter as a warning to fellow bikers.
About two weeks back at the merge lane at Hwy. 19 and Bear Cove Road I had a scary encounter.
In retropect I should have yielded at the merge, however I was confident in my motorcycle’s ability to out-accelerate the oncoming mini van.
I did not count on the driver of the van turning this into a drag race.
On seeing me trying to merge the driver accelerated and I found myself doing 120-km to avoid colliding with this van.
After I was on the highway this person tried for about a kilometer to, in my opinion, ram myself and my wife.
This person did not think for a second had they succeeded in ramming me that they would have maimed or killed someone’s parents and grandparents.
To give everyone a heads up, it was a blue Ford minivan.
I got the plate number but cannot tell you.
It shocks me there are people insane enough to attempt a rolling homicide — and they live here.
