I on the other hand have been rammed from behind, while stationary, by a car traveling about 55 mph---while I was driving. I guess I should stop driving.

I have also had some scrapes involving cars while riding a bike. But then, I have crashed on slick pavement---on at least one occasion that stands out an oily film of heavy dew which made he apex of a corner slick while every other part of the road was dry.

I guess i shouldn't ride on pavement, of when there is dew. But then---I have crashed on my mountain bike. i guess i should stick to walking.

Or maybe ... i should just assess the risks and rewards logically, adapt my behavior when possible, and continue to drive when I need to and ride while I can.

People, seriously .. It Isn't That Hard.
