Driver rants against cyclists are of course nothing new. It’s been pointed out in this space before, most skillfully by Sarah Goodyear last year, that cycling haters are actually a sign of cycling success.

OH YEAH: Driver who made Facebook videos about aggressive behavior towards bicyclists arrested : TreeHugger

In any case, it’s good to know that the law enforcement department in Calhoun County, Alabama, takes bicyclist […]
