Colorado Cyclist Has Close Call With 'Impatient' Driver

The sheriff’s office in Douglas County, Colorado, has released footage of a cyclist’s close call with a car that passed him improperly on November 17.

In the video, the cyclist, who police said made a signal, moves from the right side of the road towards the middle as he prepares to make a left turn. As he does so, the car passes close inside him, narrowly avoiding a collision.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said the “impatient” driver was shown the video of the near miss, and she agreed her actions were dangerous.

“Being in a hurry is no excuse for dangerous and illegal driving. Please take a breath and share the road with everyone,” police said. Credit: Douglas County Sheriff’s Office via Storyful
