Hot Tubs Must Go Through

8 months ago...more

Angry hot tub company delivery guy passing multiple riders while leaning on the horn the whole way. On rear camera you see barely getting around group of cyclist then getting back close to the shoulder and gunning straight for me, realigning just enough to miss me, his wheels never cross middle line. He then targets group ahead and runs them into shoulder. Front camera screenshot shows group slightly to the left of white line and then group gets pushed to the right of it. His mirrors and massive trailer passed within inches of people. He then decided to pull into the gas station about a mile ahead (some his passengers went to the store), and as cyclists approached, he flipped his finger demonstrating that his behavior was intentional.
Sheriff's department responded, driver lied to them that he only "honked" and gave us room, unaware of video evidence. Since road was state and not county road, complaint may need to be filed to state police.
