A bike-riding friend who lives in Minnesota likes to track the erratic, dangerous misadventures of people driving cars.
He refers to them as "automobilists."
I suspect this is in response to the way those who hate bike riders sneeringly use the word "bicyclist."
That sort of cracks me up. I would be tempted to start borrowing that term. But, like most bike riders, I am also an automobilist.
So never mind.
