prank concept

22 May 2007, 9:41 am

I try not to complain too much about drivers who jeopardize cyclists through inattention or malice (or for that matter, the cyclists who enable them by flagrantly flouting traffic laws), but yesterday I had a particularly tough day with several drivers of monstrosities from Cadillac, Lincoln et al.

I had a brief daydream about having a few hundred bumper stickers printed up reading “WEAPON OF MASS CONSUMPTION” and applying them to especially egregious offenders.

Note: Malicious damage to/defacement of private property could expose you to criminal and civil liability. I do not advocate such actions, and if you undertake them, you do so at your own risk. It’s just a concept.

    My fantasy bumper sticker for enormo-cars is “ASK ME ABOUT MY TINY PENIS.”

    Someone actually did something similar - although I think rather than bumper stickers, they used magnetic thingies that could be removed. I think they said something like YOUR CHILD DIED IN IRAQ SO I COULD GET 8 MILES PER GALLON.

    Semi-related: Did you see the article in the Sunday Globe about TheRightRide.org? It’s a sort of wiki where people can go to talk about the best bike routes through the city and that sort of thing. I saved the page for you. The article lists other similar online resources for mapping out bike routes.
