So I was on my 14.5th of 15th mile that finished off 30 miles for the day 5 here 10 there ya knows, Seriously now
I had to go down a busy road due to complete blockage of my canal route.
I took my lane, I was comming up to the stop light with a green light, this person was turning right on red and turned right into me he did not even stop for the light. I kinda adjusted and moved a little but it was to no use, My handle bars went bang on his front quarter panal and my body did the same. I bounced off and and landed on my side I kinda don't remember that part it happended rather fast. however I started to remember. Nothing like the feeling of lying in the middle of 3 lanes so I got up really quickly.
Now I kinda was mad So I yelled to the guy Pull over and pointed.
Note I am standing now in my lane looking right at him directly. So he pulls over I think he was shocked.
Lesson for you all>>>>>
At night take the dam lane (on a two lane road or more), I survived because I took my lane its a foot off from being a WCL. Wide Clearance Lane
I have a reflecctive vest class 2
I had a front light blinking.
I had a helmet on.
On scene within 3 min.
It was a good accident, I had witnesses thank you, the guy stopped and had insurance. I got to walk away. All in all great made me humble at the same time plus I called off work. Hopefully I will sleep well.
Be carefull out there
The cop gave me his siren when he passed me on 7th st. I had taken my half of one lane there were two other lanes. I noded and did a left turn in the Fourth lane.
Tommorw the bike shop will have my bicycle, the guy is going to pay that portion upfront.
To top it off I lost my short film competition tonight.
