Intentionally Hitting Bicyclists in DC for $500

“It’s a $500 fine for a motorist to hit a bicyclist in the District, but some behaviors are so egregious that some drivers might think it’s worth paying the fine.” ~ Courtland Milloy (Washington Post July 8, 2014)

Apparently some so-called “writer” at the Washington Post by the name of Courtland Milloy has nothing better to do than to write an article saying DC bicyclists are so bad that motorists in the District should consider intentionally hitting them with their vehicles and paying the $500 fine for doing so.

I wonder how much the Washington Post is paying Milloy to write for them? Perhaps I should apply for his job? I will work for less… I’m a better writer…. and I will ride my bike to work in DC.

Milloy should to be fired.

  1. Washington Post columnist Courtland Milloy has called DC cyclists “terrorists,” but he took up the challenge from a group of regular, expert bike riders to see what they go through everyday, sharing the road with some of the densest traffic in the country. So, after that experience, has Milloy changed his opinion? Not quite: http://bit.ly/V6lVXT
