How to tell that Spring is really here...

I had my first bicycle tantrum of the season today. After fuming for a couple of minutes behind a giant traffic-bound SUV that wouldn't -- and couldn't -- leave enough room on the side of the road for bicycles to pass, I finally managed to squeezed by. As I passed his window, I yelled, "Your car is too big!" into it.

It brought me back to the summers of yore in Montreal, when I used to stand at the corner of Parc and Milton and hold up a sign that said, "Your car is too big!" on one side and "Votre char est trop grand!" on the other. This was back when SUVs comprised only, maybe, 1 out of every 30 cars that passed by.

Ah, the halcyon days of my youth...
