This officer’s actions are one problem, but a symptom of an even bigger one
On July 11th Ken Adams and another person were cycling Glendora Mountain Road/Glendora Ridge Road, a paved one-laner that loops around from Glendora toward Mt. San Antonio (AKA Mt. Baldy), when the CHP officer you see in the video passed by them. The SUV was about two feet away when it passed them, and later the same CHP SUV passed them again, coming even closer to hitting the cycling pair. Shortly after that, the patrol vehicle turned and came at the cyclists from the front. You can hear for yourself just what the officer had to say about his performance in the video taken after the officer U-turned to have a chat. Finished watching? Good. Here’s where he’s wrong.
