“Dear PoP,

I’m not sure if this is going to the right place, but on my bike ride home from work, a cab clipped me. I was riding up 14th somewhere between Clifton and Fairmont streets and a cab seemed mad that I was on the road and went right by me, hitting my left handlebar with his side-view mirror. I didn’t fall, luckily, but I easily could have. He just as easily could have gone around me, but chose to go so close as to hit me bike. I got the license plate, and I think I know what cab company he was with.

I want to find out how I should go about reporting him in a way that will actually get something done? Maybe your readers will have suggestions, or can share their experiences?”

Do you think an incident like this is worth reporting? If so, anyone know which DC agency should be contacted about this?
