Taxi changing lanes almost hit the scooter.
Not sure if either the taxi driver or the scooter rider where aware of what was happening... I revved up just to try to warn both of them.
Oh believe me, I'm always expecting this kind of stuff... I think I knew he was turning before he did... lolDriving that big old box truck, dude can't see to the side of him very good.
You have to expect shit like that.
Well, not really, I don't.You ride around looking for that stuff. All you videos are close calls. Lane splitting right before a stop is very dumb.
Lane splitting is not the same thing as an overtake maneuver. I don't know how things are done where you live, but here it's mandatory to stop for pedestrians to cross in the crosswalk. When I saw the pedestrian I was already finishing the overtaking maneuver, and I stopped, Like I was supposed to do.Lane splitting right before a stop is very dumb.
It's easy to get too comfortable on these bikes, and then we start zipping around tightly congested city streets.
Only a matter of time before we get clipped.
We have to SLOW DOWN in the city. Leave plenty of time to react.
Cagers don't see us. Because one second, nobody is there. The next second here we come buzzing down the road zipping around cars and whizzing around corners.
Think about it. We are partially to blame. Cagers are stupid, and have slow reaction times.
We do not. So it is up to US to avoid THEM.
