a ped jumped out into the intersection at 40th and Telegraph (busy oakland traffic) trying to catch a bus that was across the street.. woman did this just as my girl was speeding through on her SS. the woman didn't look for bikes, only cars... and got blasted. unfortunately, my GF took the most damage breaking her leg in the fall. she was on crutches for 6 weeks and it was the worst time of her life trying to complete finals at Berkeley while living on a 2nd floor apartment (stairs only) and not having any other modes of transportation for groceries or getting to school. couldn't even take out her trash. she had to stay at her job, that she had already put in her 2 weeks notice in for, so that she could continue to have health care and physical therapy. delayed her move to AZ by two months. bottom line: she got f***ed by this careless ped.

ped was an idiot, and in the wrong.. but we gotta be looking for them to do this stupid shiz every time we see one. just like motorists, a huge percentage of them will never even see you.
