OT: Narrow escape of the day
Today while cycling through a certain Scottish city that starts with E, I entered an intersection with two lanes of traffic going in my direction. I was occupying the entire left hand lane; it was a "green lane'' reserved for buses and bikes. Since I'm in the UK I was curbside, on the left hand side of the road. The driver of the car occupying the right hand lane (that's the lane towards the middle of the street) swung into my lane, in an attempt to turn left. This was a mirror image of your basic right hook, except that I had the full lane. I yelled, turned hard left and bounced off the side of their car. I kept rolling, went up on the sidewalk at the opposite side of the intersection, rolled off the curb and continued on my way, in the left hand lane as before. I took out their mirror with my hip and probably scratched their door, but my bike and I suffered no injuries or damage whatsoever. I thought about going back and then didn't, i just didn't feel like getting yelled at by an angry Scot for something they did to me. On a scale of 1 to 10, how bad am I for leaving the scene of an accident?
