I almost got hit by an SUV this last week while I was riding my bike.
Cut for bad language-

The dude crossed to lanes of traffic and stopped in front of me when he finally saw he cut me off. Luckily I stopped. He looked at me like I made some kind of traffic violation, then he kept going. I called him a jerk. He yelled "Fuck you!" He had a little dog sitting on his lap. I don't think he was talking on a cellphone. I of course retaliated- "Fuck You!" While I said that I thought of the irony, I would NEVER want to fuck him. He of of course yelled back- "Bitch." I saw no point in arguing with him ;) And I road off before it escalated any further.

Now maybe I should have kept my mouth shut but what would you have done in that situation?

I don't think he was paying attention he was crossing two lanes, not at an intersection but from one parking lot to the parking lot of a auto repair garage he was looking for cars not cyclists. I assume, that is what he was doing. I did not expect a car to cross from that direction, in front of me from the left. I saw him from my peripheral and stopped suddenly he stopped suddenly after I stopped. He was in the middle of the road blocking traffic at that point so I was not going to continue. It was just funny to be glared at by a motorist that could have hit me.

Thanks for the good advice.
