I overheard this months ago at a bike shop I used to go buy things:
One of the mechanics was telling another employee there that she got seriously injured a few days earlier by a car that hit her. She was in the hospital for the night and broke her wrist, hurt her back.
The police took a report and said that she was at fault because she was riding down the wrong way (she was going Downtown on Lafayette Street, which has a bike lane, traffic runs uptown on Lafayette).
She was saying that the car owner was unhurt, but the car was damaged by her bike hitting it, and the car owner was suing her for damages to their car.
What do you think? Injustice or did she deserve it for going down the wrong way???
I myself feel that she should not have been going down the wrong way down a busy Manhattan Avenue, lots of traffic in that area (above Canal, below Houston). But being sued by the driver is just plain unfair.
