im actually writing this the same day i got hit by a car. matter of fact, it hasnt been more than 2 hours ago.
Im a reckless bicyclist, but im gonna be more careful now. I tried running a light again. Not a smart thing to do. Especially in a high traffic area like NYC.
This would be the second accident for me with a car. Both of which has to do with running a red light.
Of course, im okay. Else i would be in the hospital and not home taking care of my wounds. Im lucky.
Let me be a warning to those who are prone to run red lights. If you wanna go fast, dont do it on the streets. Find road with as little traffic (no traffic) as possible, or go to a velodrome. I walked away with a few scrapes, you might not.
Your bike might be wrecked, but worse, it could be your life. Your mistake can also raise the driver's insurance rates. These accidents aren't good for anyone.
Be careful out there, anything can happen.
To the two that got caught up in my accident, sorry for anything i might have caused you
