More often than not, when I am on the side streets close to home I'll move aside to let one of my neighbors pass. Not a problem - friendly waves are often exchanged and it's all rather civilized. Further from home, however, I am more likely to encounter large and unfamiliar vehicles, like City trucks or Xcel Energy maintenance trucks. These things take up all that's left of the roads, and they look a lot more hostile over your shoulder.
After getting nudged aside a little prematurely by an impatient City truck on Oakland Ave. last week, I have come to referring to these vehicles as "War Elephants" with good reason.
Be careful out there.
