As the motorist's rage escalated, Carl took refuge at a firehouse nearby and asked for law enforcement. When Vermont State Police arrived, they ticketed Carl for not riding on the right. The motorist was not penalized, although the motorist clearly violated the Safe Passing law. Carl is consulting with the VBPC and others regarding how he should proceed. He is working to arrange a time later this month to show his video to law enforcement in the hope that the ticket he was issued will be torn up and the motorist will be cited. If you wish to email Carl about his experience, his address is Carl@Etnier.net
What happened to Carl is, unfortunately, much too common. This incident points out why bicycle advocacy is so important and why it's essential for all victims to report incidents of harassment to law enforcement and local elected officials. The victim is viewed as a credible witness in a court of law. You don't need a helmet-mounted camera to prove it. Please report!
