sorry 'bout your mishap. i'm glad you kept your wits about you.
although i do walk a lot,i ride my bike way more.
every time i ride,its like i have a target on my back!
very few drivers even take the time to be aware about their surroundings.
i get hit,or almost hit A LOT!!!!
people turning,while looking the other way are very common.
the worst are the drivers who do see me,but think cars are way more important
than cyclists,so they just pull out in front of me,even though i have the right of way!
---" ya,i'm sory mr.driver,i forgot that wherever your going is much more important than my safety.
and i forgot that cars always have the right away over a mere bicycle.
silly me,why wouldn't they? they are much bigger!!!"
the best is when i almost get hit,and we both lock our brakes,and the driver smiles and waves me on like they are doing me a favor!!!
my response is always 'THANCKS A LOT YA %$&$#^% IDIOT!!!! LEARN HOW TO DRIVE!!!
again,i'm glad you had your senses about you and no one was hurt!
thanx for letting me rant,on your rant thread!!!
