    People who text and drive should be charged with impersonating a human being and flogged in the town square........

    To add to this, always always always check your blind spot. My cousin was on a bike with her husband a few years ago and they got clipped by a merging driver. They are both OK, but the road rash itself kept them both from working for some time,

    Agreed, but did you notice that the FIRST plea deal was for less than a year? and the judge refused it! IF this had been a jury trial and a jury sentencing , and me on the jury, I would vote for no less than 5 years!!:mad:

    Yeah , please be careful , this was 2004 May 8:34 AM Yellow SL mercedes - Right hand lane yapping on cell phone

    Im in the middle lane and see that - accelerate past her to get away

    I stop at the RED LIGHT and check my 9 O clock - she smacks into me - sends me flying into traffic

    it it was not for my ninja skills - a would of been road kill for a Tahoe

    * this lady had enough nerve to call me later that day and attempted to pay me in cash for it - .....

    Glad you came out of it ok Tinman.
    Had a lady cut me trying to change lanes on a rainy day. Those wide white lines are slick as ice when wet.
    People were honking their horns while I was trying to pick my bike up off the road. They were pissed because I was in the middle of the lane and they could not get past.

    I would have gone longer than that. Accidents happen, but leaving the scene is inexcusable and in my mind should be a homicide charge when a life is lost.
