no kidding...as a bike commuter in downtown Toronto, I've learned to stay focused, be prepared for the unexpected, and keep my speed down so that I don't outrun my brakes...
Still, I've been pulled out from under trucks twice, dislocated my shoulder because of a reckless Mercedes, doored several times, and have even been nicked by side view mirrors 5 times this year.
Not a day goes by without a close call with the potential to do some harm.
As the saying goes..."A cyclist makes a mistake, the cyclist dies...a driver makes a mistake, the cyclist dies"
I no longer bother with helmet, except on the trails when riding solo
