Who is responsible for the transition area of sidewalks where they cross driveways?
I crashed my new bike on the way home from work a few weeks ago due to a bad area where a private drive exits into a state highway.
I was literally tossed out into the middle of the right hand lane like a ragdoll, luckily behind a group of vehicles that had just passed going the opposite direction. Maybe I should not have been going against the flow of traffic, but there is no sidewalk and a nasty turn lane on the opposite side of the road.
I was on the sidewalk so I didn't think it mattered if I was against the flow or with it.
My ribs were bruised, and my left arm still hurts pretty good.
There are future plans by the state to rebuild and expand the intersection 30 or so yards away, my question is, can I get back a days lost wages due to poor maintenance?
