So i add another accident to the same intersection, different driver and plus more things:
Day starts out going for a bike ride, ride a couple of miles, tire pressure is down...great!...
Second thing is the crankset on my bike is busted or dented "in" at one section so when i pedal at that bent, the chain passes the derailleur and it scratches it.
Third, i start out using my new shoes and pedals i bought and i am of course learning to get out of my pedals and such.
Anyway, it rained during my ride, not much, probalby 8 miles if that or damn less, so i was coming back home, i get to the same damn intersection and i have once again checked every aspect of pedestrian/biker right of way and i am watching closely to the driver of the car and they f* no way see me coming, i am not big or i look like a monster, but i can be seen. Well, as i have a new set of pedals and shoes and it is literally my first time out, i see that i can make it and sure enough they stop way way beyond the line for people and i had to fall to the right side of me (street) and i am now 8 inches away from that car as it is about to roll, my head towards it.
Oh, wait, i forgot, the damn driver goes slowly, i quickly get off my pedals, get up and sure, OF COURSE, they drive away, lalalalalala boo boob boo, like their **** don't stink!
that is it, no more riding to the close as hell to me busse woods, I AM DRIVING and then riding from their parking lot, bunch of stupid F*s out in this schaumburg/elk grove village area, they are a bunch of spoiled little rats...
sorry, i had to vent...
