Quick Justice for Cab Nearly Hitting Cyclist [video]

Listen, as a rider and a driver, I can't take one particular side. Though cyclists are very vocal about drivers not looking out for them, cyclists can be, well...real douches. The fact that they enjoy the smell of their own farts doesn't make it okay to pull what this cab driver pulled in Washington, D.C. As you can see from the video below, an illegal U-turn almost resulted in bicyclists untimely demise. Luckily, the local police was on the scene to dole out some instant justice.
Still, there is something so self-righteous about the, "Illegal, ILLEGAL!!!" response. Also, Washington, D.C., what is up with your bike lanes on the inside? That seems incredibly dangerous.
