so I was hit by a car today..

Recommended Posts

So Im on crutches now..Im not complaining here..It boggles my mind more that anything..I ride my bike everyday on my lunch break..we always joke about the fact that when you are on a bike or on foot you are invisible..

 

People have gotten out of control..

No one looks where they are going..A week ago at that same corner a little boy was hit and the driver left the scene..

I was on my way back to work and a woman pulled out of a parking lot with out paying attention..She never stopped on her way to turn out onto the street..I tried to stop and on impulse my feet hit the ground to drag to a halt..but she hit me right in the leg...pushing my bike out from under me ..causing me to slide up onto her hood..

I freaked out ..and as I collected my self to go around to talk to her....still in shock..the bitch took off..

I couldnt believe it..

People just kept going..I had to stop if I would have swerved out of the way I would have hit oncoming traffic..

 

does anyone else feel me on this..have roads completely taken over? How do we feel about these metal bubbles we all get around in..are we happy we can get around with ease..or do you think its out of control?

 

or has anyone else experienced hit and run?

I think that's such bullshit. Not your story, well, yeah, your story, but not your veracity. I'm sorry you're 4 legged :(. I mean, it's bullshit that pepole are so totally self absorbed.

I'm sorry, I didn't really adress your question. I think, however, that I still pointed out what I consider the root of the problem. Self-asorbtion. Cars are merely another form of insulation.

geeze! i hope you're doing alright and your recovery is speedy

 

drivers can suck. no doubt about that.

 

a friend in Florida told me that he knew a bike messenger who was clipped/run off the road and went down hard. the champ got up, chased the car for well over a mile before catching it pinned at a stoplight. the story goes that he proceed to jump on the hood (ragged and blood streaked, of course) and smash his bike through the windshield. i always thought that was some badass revenge.

 

be careful on the road kids

once i was driving and some guy pulled up behind me in a hilarious car and he had a hilarious haircut so i started laughing. (he looked like one of the kottonmouth kings) so he got out and started running up to my car, the light turned green and i drove away. then he caught up and flipped me off, then he threw a fucking pepsi bottle at me and hit my car and it exploded, then he made a motion that he was going to shoot me and tried to run me off the road. since then i never make eye contact with other drivers.

siloette-

get well, i hope you heal quick

i have been hit and doored many times

when people are dumb, and then get mad at you because THEY are dumb, i have a tendancy to chase, spit, curse, and throw shit at them. i have launched many a rock or whatever is handy at the ig'nant mofos. on the flip though, im the first to admit if i am wrong and do something boneheaded. but when people have been know to hit me when hes the one driving the wrong way down a one way street... heads up.

same exact thing happened to me five years ago, except replace car with big ass delivery truck, and replace tried to stop with tried to beat it out of the way. fucker turned into the middle lane and tried to merge into traffic and didn't even look or hit the brakes until he ran me down. i think there are people that shouldn't be driving, and it sucks that person ran, my guy couldn't run he was in a company truck and makes deliveries around there all day. crutches suck, but once you get some towels on 'em and get over the hurt, you can still get around. good luck recouperating, hope this doesn't set you back too much.

Exactly!!

It's a living room on wheels.

You can act like an asshole without any apology

beause it's like your not really out in the world.

You may look out the window at your neighbours,

but it's considered rude to look into another car.

You can give people the finger and swear like a sailor,

because these people are truly in their own world.

 

I'm envious of Asian culture where most everone has a bike

or walks to public transit. You have to deal with people in the real world.

It's impossible to sheild yourslef with 2 tons of steel and

act like you own the world.

 

and dont even get me started on people who throw garbage

out the windows while driving through the country. :heated:

I got hit myself in a similar situation a couple weeks back but the only damage was to my back fender.

I think a lot of times people forget that their vehicle can be a weapon more deadly than any gun. Automobiles can be fucking scary when you're just flesh and blood walking or riding your bike. I usually try to take the mindset that once I get on my bike I become invisible. Seriously. Maybe my bike has magical invisibilty powers or something, because I swear fuckers will not stop for me.

 

The only upside to Silo's accident is the cool $5 thrift store crutches she can use as weapons if need be! :)

yes.. you do become invisible on a bike.

 

that's why most of the bike messengers around here

have a whistle in their mouth all the time.

You can be heard... but it's still a dangerous game.
