I'm glad to see laws outlawing this kind of behaviour. It's unfortunate we even have to pass laws to enforce what should be appropriate behavior by auto drivers towards bicyclists but there you go.
Still bicyclists need to realize they are riding a much smaller vehicle and act accordingly. In any dispute between a car and a bicycle, the bike is going to lose. The bike may have the right of way at an intersection, but it's not worth getting run over to win an argument with the driver in the car that really wants to go first.
