I have a semi-good reason .

At Yonge/Lawrence at 6 pm I was involved in a collision in which I went through a motorists rear-windshield. It probably won't be on the news, but the good samaritan nurse and the paramedics were great! I got ticketed though for "failing to turn left to avoid collision" after a driver turned into the curb lane and braked hard in front of me. Oh, operator, you should check out the women nurses at Sunnybrook, they're hawt!

Here's some pics...

Are you ****ing kidding me!!! Failure to avoid collision? How about citing the motorist for failing to use brain?

Geez, hope you're okay (ps. make sure they have the vehicle type down as a bicycle)

HOLY ****. I didn't ride down today like I said man, damnit. And they ticketed you for the collision? You gotta be ****ting me.

Glad to see you aren't extremely owned although those wrist/arm/shin injuries are kind of frightening. Also how is your bike?

Were you riding in the middle of the lane (slow enough traffic?) or just on the right and they pulled into curb? Lawrence is ****ed man.

It was a teen driver with his girlfriend, I saw his turn signal but he stopped mysteriously in front of me for no apparent reason even though I was in the middle of the curb lane (so cars wouldn't try to pass me for that very reason).

18 stiches + staples and they froze my left arm. Feeling alright now and kinda numb; though earlier I fainted on the scene and they gave me some oxygen and put me in this uncomfortable head-brace for the trip to the hospital. Yep, they put me down as a bicycle, but for me it's a non-issue as I don't have a driver's license.

Yeah, they'd hard collar you to until they're sure you didn't fracture your neck. Hopefully he won't make his deductible..
I've seen cagers stop like that because they don't know where you are and don't want to right hook you. I've had it done a couple of times cause' they're searching their right side mirror instead of checking their rearview. That too cause most motorists don't know how to use mirrors anyway.

I phoned my dad and he came and picked me up near the firestation where the police had left it. The right handlebar is slightly bent and the front fender is wrecked (it's plastic), but the front wheel looks ok, though the rear flatted.

$85 ticket; the police said I have a good chance to fight it; I'm gonna phone his insurance company and try to make a claim anyways...

Ya, collisions in Newmarket in August, 2 in London in October and December and now 1 in Toronto. Suburban drivers...

I've got you covered for new handlebars. I can probably find you a new fender too.

Heal up quick man, glad you're okay-ish.
