    physics laws? Like how brake pads work?

    You’re pretty bad at lawyering.
    You forgot to include "bodily injury." Was rolling coal an intent to create apprehension and fear of bodily injury to another? This is a tough call. He wanted to piss the cyclists off, but how does rolling coal next to someone assault them? You could contend having to inhale diesel exhaust causes bodily injury.

    I think it is definitely vehicular assault though, because all you need there is a reckless act. And rolling coal is definitely reckless driving because it often involves peeling out and fishtailing.

    Apprehension and fear of bodily injury due to the fact they’re now having to ride on a highway through OPAQUE BLACK SMOKE. Goddamn, man. How are you getting thoroughly cooked by a guy with an associates degree?

    If there were life-threatening levels of scary "OPAQUE BLACK SMOKE", how could your scam witness see what happened?

    I am prepared to accept the possibility that highanger knows what happened first hand. He's definitely not one to speculate, so maybe he was in Texas.

    Loud diesel truck rolls up (2). Black smoke envelopes people riding their bikes (2). Coal was intentionally rolled (4).

    There are 2 types of people in this world: those that can extrapolate from incomplete data

    Because he was behind group that was hit and had a clear view of the whole thing.

    Pretty sure their spandex is tugging their dingleberries and inflaming their medulla oblongatas, Doc.
    What else could explain their intolerance?

    Y'all need to accept that you are sharing the roads with 16yo coal rollers and doped-up 78yo PTSD diabetics who resent you the same way they resent road cones and armadillos.
    You can't argue gravity with the fall line or debate traffic law with a skidding truck. Use the bike paths. You won't get hit by cement trucks and all our insurance rates will go down.

    Vibes about that diabetes. Good for you for making it to 78 though.

    Breathing dangerous diesel fumes
    by Karen Bowen
    February 23, 2016
    Every time you stand outside your rig when it’s running, you experience an
    occupational hazard – diesel fumes – a recognized toxic substance.
    In recent years the composition of diesel fuel has become less toxic and diesel
    engines have become more efficient; however, inhaling diesel fumes over an
    extended period of time can still lead to acute or short-term health effects.
    Diesel fuel, like gasoline, is a hydrocarbon-based fuel. Short-term exposure to diesel
    fumes, such as when you fuel your truck or clean up a small spill, can temporarily
    irritate your eyes, skin or respiratory tract and/or cause dizziness, headache or
    nausea. However, longer-term exposure may lead to more serious health concerns,
    such as lung cancer, kidney damage, and increased risk of heart attack.
    Diesel exhaust, a specific type of diesel fume, has more negative health effects than
    regular diesel fumes. Short-term exposure can irritate your eyes, nose, throat and
    lungs; it can cause coughs, bronchitis, headaches, lightheadedness and nausea.

    Lengthy exposure to diesel exhaust may increase your risk of developing asthma, a
    variety of lung diseases, heart disease, as well as brain and immune system issues. In
    studies using human volunteers, exposure to diesel exhaust particles made people
    with allergies more susceptible to the materials to which they were allergic, like dust
    and pollen. Exposure may also trigger lung inflammation, aggravating chronic
    respiratory symptoms and increasing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks.
    The 40 different toxic compounds found in diesel exhaust can cause immediate and
    serious health concerns.
    A complex mixture of fine particles and gases, diesel exhaust contains both
    unburned diesel fuel and particulates (soot). The primary dangerous substances
    found in diesel exhaust include particulate matter, carbon monoxide, nitrogen
    oxides, hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, and other hazardous gases.
    Diesel particulate matter (DPM), sometimes called diesel exhaust particles (DEP), is
    the term used for the solid or liquid particles the exhaust carries into the air. Some
    particles are visible as soot or smoke, but most are fine particulate matter, which is
    composed of very small objects floating in the air, like dust, dirt, soot, smoke, and
    liquid droplets. Ninety per cent of diesel particulate matter is considered fine
    particulate matter (less than 2.5 microns in diameter).
    Diesel particulate also contains diesel soot and aerosols, including: ash particulates,
    metallic abrasion particles, silicates and sulfates. Since the fine particles are so small,
    you easily inhale them deeply into your lungs where they are quickly transported into
    your bloodstream. So, people with existing heart or lung disease, asthma or other
    respiratory problems are most sensitive to the health effects of these fine particles.
    As well, the particulates’ rough surfaces catch and carry other harmful,
    environmental toxins along with them as you breathe them deeply into your lungs.
    Inhaling this particulate matter may aggravate asthma, bronchitis, emphysema,
    and/or cause coughing and difficult or painful breathing, decreased lung function,
    weakening of the heart, heart attacks and/or premature death.
    Carbon monoxide, another component of diesel exhaust, reduces your blood’s ability
    to deliver oxygen to your organs, damaging these organs. Extremely high
    concentrations cause death. Nitrogen oxide, also found in diesel exhaust, covers a

    group of highly reactive gases composed of various amounts of nitrogen and oxygen.
    Low levels of nitrogen oxide can irritate your eyes, throat, lungs and cause coughing,
    shortness of breath, tiredness and nausea. However, breathing high concentrations
    can trigger more serious symptoms like rapid burning, spasms and swelling of the
    throat and upper respiratory tract, reduced oxygen in your tissues and a build up of
    fluid in your lungs.
    Nitrogen oxides damage lung tissue, lower your body’s resistance to respiratory
    infections and can increase the severity of chronic lung diseases, such as asthma.
    Since studies show that people who work around diesel equipment, including truck
    drivers, are more likely to develop these health issues than workers not exposed to
    diesel emissions, it is important to take precautions. Even though you may not be
    able to avoid fumes altogether, you reduce your risk.
    Avoid breathing diesel fumes as much as possible. If you must idle your truck in an
    enclosed area, such as a service bay or warehouse, keep the idling time as short as
    possible. As well, be sure the ventilation system is working efficiently. When
    available, use local exhaust ventilation with intake and exhaust fans, since this is
    most effective. Use a tailpipe or stack exhaust, too.
    However, if no local exhaust ventilation is available, avoid running your rig inside.
    When necessary, use general ventilation practices: open doors and windows, use
    floor fans and/or roof vents and fans. Since general ventilation distributes exhaust
    throughout the inside of the building is less effective, keep idling time to a minimum.
    Most people are exposed to diesel exhaust fumes daily, but your exposure is higher.
    Take these precautions and let your health risks disappear into thin air.

    Good point Ken! Why road bikers seek to subject themselves to enhanced levels of diesel fumes remains a mystery.

    No charges in Greg Knapp case
    https://www.bicycling.com/news/a3708...t-by-a-driver/

    The Contra Costa County District Attorney blamed the collision on the driver’s inattention, but that it was not enough to press criminal charges. In fact, the driver has not received any negligence charge or other citation, and the police have stated that the investigation is closed. The D.A.’s office released a follow up statement on September 24 to clarify its decision, according to the Pleasanton Weekly:

    “Bicycle fatalities are devastating events. Following thorough review of the investigation, the Office of the District Attorney has determined that there is insufficient evidence to satisfy the requisite standard of criminal negligence on the part of the suspect driver. The dangers of distracted driving are well known; to truly promote road safety, motorists need to be attentive drivers as well,” the D.A.’s office said.



    Not even a traffic citation. Knapp was riding in a bike lane at the time. If Knapp had been riding inattentively and killed the DA's kid in a crosswalk I suspect that they would have charged him. America: Where murder is legal if you use your car.

    Contra Costa County might be the top road biking county in America. It's liberal, wealthy, and where the entire Bay area goes to road bike. It's full of biking infrastructure.
