Cyclist vs. Elephant

American cyclists are used to dealing with disrespect on the road, but not from elephants.

American cyclists are used to dealing with disrespect on the road, but not from elephants.

Below is a video of a decidedly under-looked commuter issue: the lane-hogging elephant. As a cyclist attempts to pass the lumbering animal, he receives a stern tap from the elephant's trunk. It's not clear where this video is from, but if this is India we're looking at, then the cyclist is actually correct to be passing on the right. Yet another reason to wear a helmet.
