Re: Car accident

I may be a bit dim, but you say the car waved you in and you proceeded to enter the mainstream - in front of that car - when the bike zipped along and bashed into you (from the bicycle lane) ?

He was overtaking the cars on his left? Not legal.

Some bike riders are fast giving bikers (generally) a bad name because they seem to be riding rather recklessly these days - like hugging car bumpers, zig-zagging thru traffic, whizzing past on overtaking with hardly any decent distance from cars (generally scaring the bejasus out of a car driver with sudden varooohm by drivers window).

Anyway, it is good that you have vented your story here, and gotten understanding and sympathy. It helps to tell the story and get it out of your brain. Like the others say, the scene will diminish in time and cease to bother you so much. At least everyone is alive and not damaged.
