Well, before you get angry, let me tell my story:
I'm sitting at a T-junction waiting to turn right onto a fairly major rode. There's a fair amount of traffic so I'm just chillin' waiting for a gap in the cars. I see one coming, I look left, I look right, I look left again as I start to accelerate into the gap, then as I look ahead/right again I slam on the brakes as my front bumper clips a biker!! - who was in the right hand lane going AGAINST the flow of traffic !
Now, this dumba$$ was riding fast ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD past PARKED CARS so I don't think I could reasonably have seen him / expected him? Luckily though he just kissed my plastic bumper and bailed quite impressively onto the road. I got out to see if he was ok, he seemed fine, he jumped back on his bike with a now bloody knee - gave me the finger and some obsenities and then carried on riding down the wrong side of the road !!
My question is, if I'd seriously injured this guy would it be my fault ?? I'm an avid biker myself and ride all the time, but never the wrong way on a busy street !
