I nearly got myself killed this morning and I’m sure, ruined some lady’s day in the process.
While riding down a 4-lane road, I approached an intersection without slowing down at all. The lady to my right started moving to cross my path. What the hell? She was still moving as I’m entering the intersection. I’m on the horn, I don’t slow down, I stay on the gas and angle slightly the left. OMG, this is it, I’m going to be crushed by this SUV!
…and in that split second I realized that while lost in thought, I was running a red light. Not like – it turned red while I was almost through intersection, RED-red. So red the lady to my right was nearly halfway across the road.
This situation was 100% my fault.
And I swear to you, it was so close I actually thought she hit me but somehow I just didn’t feel it. I felt the heat of her engine on my leg. I mean… how did I not get crushed? Divine intervention? I guess my number wasn’t up today.
Whoever was looking out for me today, thank you.
