I'm glad to hear that you're OK...had a near miss myself today on the way in. Stopped at Hwy 70 and waited for the light. There was a minivan in the left turn lane, I pulled up next to it on my Recumbent. When the light turned green, the minivan hesitated...I waited too, and a 1/2 ton pickup coming from my left (blocked by the minivan) came screaming through the light on the red. When the van started to move so did I. If I would have stepped on the pedal and moved out into the intersection on the green light I would have been creamed by the pickup. Sometimes you just get lucky....
