From Reid Priedhorsky
I encountered a particularly hostile and unsafe driver on Friday
morning: near the top of the 38th St. hill, I was using the full lane,
preparing to turn left onto Diamond, when I was passed at high speed
despite “don’t pass” hand signals and upcoming blind corner.
Subsequently, I was able to enjoy a profanity-laden tirade.
It was a silver VW sedan, turquoise NM plates, male driver, booster seat
in the back. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a plate number. I suspect he
lives in the Aspen School neighborhood and/or drops off a child at one
of the two schools here.
I raise this here because I had a similar issue on Central a month or so
ago, and I think it might be the same person: also a silver sedan, also
a very unsafe high-speed pass. That is, there might be a pattern with
Could folks keep a look-out for this vehicle and take particular care to
call the police if they witness any problematic behavior, and also
share anything they learn so others (like me!) can help build a case
that it’s a pattern. I’m not sure if this is the correct venue, but it’s
what I could think of. Maybe we can get a handle on this guy before
someone gets hurt.
