City Of Montreal Car Dangerously Honks At Cyclist Who Legally Took His Way Under A Viaduct

Only one day after the tragic death of a Montreal cyclist, another potential accident almost occurred. And it was caused by what looks to be a city of Montreal official's car

Biking underneath an overpass on Girouard between Sherbrooke and upper Lachine, a Montreal cyclist videotaped their ride and points out a very real dangers posed to many cyclists by drivers.

Honking at a cyclist is a serious distraction, one that could prove fatal. The person driving the City of Montreal car apparently doesn't get that.

The inherent risk of filming while biking aside, the video does showcase how some drivers simply don't respect cyclists on the road, even city officials, as the car would suggest. After yesterday's fatal accident, a Montreal official should be more aware of cyclist safety.

See how it all goes down in the video below.

Who was in the right here?
