I was rear ended today in my car while stopped at a red light. I was hit so hard that my car was pushed well into the one in front. I had been stopped in traffic, just sitting there.
The car that hit me at 50 km/h was a 84 year old lady. Her third at-fault accident in two months. She had no clue the traffic was stopped at the lights.
I've been fearing this for years, and it now only makes me more paranoid when on my bike. With the ageing population and ageing drivers, I'm reading about a tragedy every day.
If you have a elderly grand parent or parent that still drives, and drives poorly, think about telling them to stop, two or more lives may be saved.
