2 days ago, I was cycling down a boulevard, and at the end of the street, I went into the left turn lane in order to turn left onto another street. Up in front of me was a huge delivery truck, so I could not see the left turn light and when the truck moved, then I moved. As the truck was making the left turn, the light turned red, which meant I had to wait until the traffic was clear, so I stopped. BEHIND ME, a motorist failed to keep a safe distance between me and his vehicle, so when I stopped to wait for the traffic to clear, he ended up rear ending me. Good thing I have a full fender on my rear wheel, which took most of the impact, and loosening a bolt as a result. No other damage though. The thing that bugs me about this is that the motorist stopped quite close to my rear wheel while I stopped behind the truck at the red light, and in general, these motorists are such in a rush that even if I am not making a left and going straight, they still stop dangerously close to my bike at a red light. Overall, my point is, motorists, KEEP A GOOD DISTANCE BETWEEN CYCLISTS AND YOU. The lives of cyclists like me depend on your actions as a driver.
