    If the weather is not too hot, I wear them. One of the reasons is I have reflective stickers on them, so at night it helps with visibility when signaling a turn.

    #30 & #32 : The issue whether the woman in the video had fault is not relevant to my question. How about supposing it was a driver running red light and a similar scenario occurred, or whatever...

    Ok sorry if it's not clear. I mean when it happens very suddenly, your almost instinctive reaction with no time to think. The reason I ask is that since my foot can't reach the ground while seated on...
  10. In case of emergency do you dismount the bike immediately?

    When there is an impending accident, such as when you are about to hit a pedestrian/object/vehicle, do you immediately get off your bike completely (both feet on ground), or just stop the bike with...

    Yes I realize sometimes the pedestrian signal can be different from the traffic light.
