man blocks road, harasses and follows me around the neighborhood, Calif. plate 82569T2 small black Chevy pickup

This older bearded man in the small black pickup yelled some bicycle-specific nonsense out the window and then brake-checked me when I told him off. I decided to take a detour along the canal, but he proceeded to follow me around the neighborhood in a very creepy way.

This kind of aggressive, threatening behavior needs to be stopped before this guy tries to power trip on someone less intent on de-escalating the situation. Revoke aggressive driver's licenses, they should not be able to continue to threaten people and intentionally try cause collisions like this.

This bridge over the canal needs traffic calming since drivers speed over it and also use the bottleneck to be abusive towards people on bicycles. They like to yell out their window at this bridge and then drive in a way where they clearly are trying to cause a collision. This has happened to me a number of times at this location, only a few of which I have caught on film.

I also have personally seen people walking here who were nearly hit by drivers speeding over this canal bridge. You can't see what is on the other side of the bridge where it would be reasonable to slow down, yet it seems to bring out a lot of dangerous driving in this particular section where it temporarily widens out.
