Steer clear of this college student if she should happen to be driving near you. Apparently it's OK to intimidate cyclists with a car because of one or two previous encounters.

Are all cyclists well-behaved? No. But certainly there are a lot of dangerous car drivers in this area: texting/web browsing while driving, speeding, running red lights. I don't think it's very responsible for someone to publicly declare some sort of bike/car "war" like this because of some personal experiences. Should all pedestrians go after cars drivers downtown because some of them like to force pedestrians out of crosswalks? Should cyclists try to block trucks when they can? No. And neither should a car driver be trying to intimidate other legal users of the road.
