I saw this on prolly’s blog and I was honestly shocked, and not even just the unexpected crash but the fact that the driver didn’t slow down a bit and the witnessing motorists didn’t move a muscle either – not one person came to check if the dude was alright, let alone calling the police on the dangerous driver. hard to keep faith in some people when a bicycle can warp people’s morals
at least the victim showed some astonishing humility:
“Cyclists: riding is safe. Keep your eyes open and protect your important bits.
Drivers: Accidents happen. No hard feelings. Please stop to make sure everyone is alive and well. That is the civilized protocol after any accident- regardless of the vehicles involved. ”
it’s incredible that someone can be so cool headed when every part of the ordeal would have made it hard to be so, maybe I’ll try and adopt some of his calm, getting worked up on a ride because of inconsiderate vehicles can ruin your day
