- License plate 8XC-736, I believe Massachusetts. Asshole
factor 4/5. Driver was behind me at 19:40 or so 2020-02-29,
westbound on Highland Ave in Somerville, MA. Tried to pass illegally
close, and I signaled that he should not. Driver started yelling at
me at next stoplight. "I'll fuck you up!" I asked if he was making
threats and if I should call the police. He continued hurling
expletives, but remained in his car. Driver appeared to be a
dark-skinned male. Car had a handicap placard. Driver accelerated
around me after intersection, this time with a legal passing
- License plate 1PM-792, I think Massachusetts. Asshole factor
1/5. Driver was heading southbound at a leisurely pace on Cedar
St in Somerville MA at 20:45 on 2020-06-30, just sporadically
honking. Driver not easily visible in the dark. Maybe this is the
joy-honker I hear from time to time?
- License plate 761-AS1, assumed Massachusetts. Asshole factor
3/5. Aggressive and reckless driver. At about 14:34 on

tailgated another car, and started fishtailing to try to pass,
veering entirely into the paint-protected bike lane about 3 times,
and honking once or twice. They then turned left onto Highland and
peeled out (frame of car tilting from acceleration) and continued
west. Passenger was a light-skinned woman with blond hair.
