No, the driver was not having engine problems. Family of 5 returning from Halloween thing at zoo. Plenty of parking at Civic Center and parking lot across from zoo. Bicyclist almost hit by opposing traffic trying to get around him. He gave me the finger when I politely asked him why in the hell would you park there. Called SPD, but driver high-tailed it out of there when he saw me on cell. Unbelievable.
