I was riding home along Lutwyche Rd through Kedron last night. Was wearing a jacket with bright reflective strips plus I know my headlight is clear and strong but still this wasn't enough for the green P Plater to notice me. He flew straight out of a side street into the lane I was riding along, didnt even stop to check the busy road he was driving out onto. I had to do an emergency swerve and brake into the next lane (glad there was no other vehicle there) even so he only very narrowly missed hitting me. The car was full of young guys, flicking their cigarette butts out the window and music thumping away. Anyway, it was the closest thing Ive come to an accident on my commute, makes me yearn for those long and lazy country weekend rides away from city traffic.
