And if you would have hit him.... what would you have said? You didn't see him in time? He came out of no where? He wasn't dressed appropriately (as in bright reflective clothing)?

Hey lets face it most people that buy a new bicycle take them home and rip off the reflectors and dork disc. Everyone knows/says that affordable lighting just isn't good enough to make you seen. And wearing a black hoodie... is just plain rapper-cool.

Cyclists make it difficult for motorists. People who chose to drive aren't murderers. They are merely motorists. The idea of running over a cyclist scares the crap out of almost everyone.
