Motorist with Baseball Bat threatened cyclist
Date: Monday August 23rd, 2010
Time: Approximately 11:50am
Location: Don Mills Road between Barber Greene Road and Wynford Drive
Story: Cycling southbound approaching Barber Greene RED light. Traffic was very light (one or two cars in the other two lanes, I was alone in the commuter lane). I looked over my shoulder and saw a car headed toward me (southbound also). Tried to squeeze on my left, even though it was red, and I was clearly taking the lane. I shrieked and moved a bit to the right. She passed me and gave me the middle finger.
I caught up to her at Wynford Drive (also at a Red light) and asked her "What's your problem? I'm going straight!". She said something that I couldn't understand, and then pulled out a wooden worn-out baseball bat, then zoomed off. I only made out part of her license plate: BFVS
Description of offender:
Age: 20's or early 30's
Description of vehicle:
Colour: Dark Green
Shape: Corolla or similar shape (can't remember the exact make or brand of the car).
License plate: BFVS something
I tried to report this to police, but they could not do anything, since I don't have a complete license plate number.
Therefore, I would like to warn every other cyclist on Don Mills Road. If you see anyone behaving like this, remember their license plate and report them.
