Riding home from work yesterday arvo, outbound on the Westgate, take the Kororoit Creek Rd exit, right over bridge, left at the Westside Tavern and the go through the roundabout onto Old Geelong / Sayers Rd. As I go through the roundabout I see a flash of green in my mirror and then watch as a car comes straight through the intersection, gets airborn straight over the top of the roundabout, dirt and crap fliing everywhere. I keep riding thinking to myself "did I actually just see what I thought I saw?", I did a U-turn at the next roundabout to go back and make sure that the driver is ok, it could have been a elderly person or someone with kids in the car etc. I get back to the roundabout and the car is pulled over on the left hand side of the road out the front of the Westside hotel. There was a young guy, prolly not more than 19 under the front of the car trying to clear crap out from under the front and trying to fix what is left of the front spoiler / bumper. Flip up the visor - "you ok mate?", says he is ok, so I ask him what happened, he tells me that he lost his steering, I ask him "did you lose your brakes too?" He looks at me with a blank look on his face. I tell him that if I was 2 seconds later through the roundabout he would have killed me, I tell him that he must have doing 60 or 70kph when he came through the roundabout and the steering excuse was bullshit. Then I ask him, "so what was it, texting on the mobile or changing the cd?", he goes a shade of crimson that I have never seen and then starts muttering an apology etc. I ask him if he needs any help but says he is ok, I tell him that my family is looking forward to Christmas and the holidays and his probably is as well and that he could have ruined it for both our families. I tell him to take it easy and be more alert when he is driving, particularly during this time of year and if he is on unfamiliar roads. We wish each other a Merry Christmas and I am on my way. It wasn't until later when I was having dinner with the family and telling my wife about it that I realised just how close I had came. Hopefully the guy will learn something from it. Be careful out there guys and girls.
