Eh, Brah! I was walking on the sidewalk down Ka`ahumanu Avenue early the other morning. Suddenly, you whizzed by me from behind on a bike doing at least 20 miles per hour, less than a foot from me. Look, I’m 75 and have osteoporosis. If you’d clipped me and knocked me down, I could have fallen and broken my hip. Or given me a heart attack. There was a bike lane two feet away! And no cars on the road! But when I yelled at you, you flipped me off! Years ago, a cyclist just like you slammed into me and then rode off. I suffered a concussion and had headaches for weeks. You selfish jerks don’t belong the sidewalk. Get off!
