I was coming home from school after studying for 9 hours today and I get to the intersection right before my tram stop. I saw my tram coming and couldn't wait for the cross walk sign so I decided to just cross the street. It was rainy and dark so I made extra sure to look both ways first. I even stared for a full 5 seconds and saw NO cars or headlights so I started crossing the road. Then suddenly when I reached the middle of the road, I heard furious honking. I looked at where it was coming from and still couldn't see anything! I could hear the horn (he was pretty much holding it down) but it was like it was coming out of thin air. Only until he was about 15 meters away did I see him. Black bike, all-black outfit, and no hi-vis vest. He swore at me something fierce as he sped past me. I don't know why I didn't see him. Perhaps it was the glare from the lamp posts off the wet ground shrouding his head lights (which were pretty darn dim) or maybe because I was overly stressed from studying. But if I was a car it probably wouldn't have ended well for him. So if it's dark and rainy, do everything you can to be seen because I honestly did not see him at all. I've always been told how invisible we can be, but that really opened my eyes!
