Wow. Good reminder about safety.
Was riding to the store yesterday. Where I live there is a spot where the freeway turns into a 40mph zone after an intersection. Everyone drives like a maniac. So, I was waiting to go straight. At the front between lanes. I'm pretty good about looking both ways before I go. For some reason, this time I was about to just gun it. Didn't. Looked up and an SUV with a big old lady eating while talking on her cell BLASTED through a good second or two after the red. She was going 50mph or so. I would have been a very dead or injured dude.
A good reminder. It only takes one time breaking your rules. I'm real glad I didn't. Be careful guys.
