I just bought my first bike last weekend after selling my car. I've been driving for over 10 years and have always been a very defensive driver. Never had an accident, very few close calls. On my first ride through some back streets, I was approaching a car that had just turned across my path into a driveway. My assumption at the time was this person did not intend to park, but was in fact turning around. I slowed down slightly in response and sure enough, the car suddenly reverses quickly out of the driveway right in front of me. Being prepared, I was on the brakes with plenty of time to spare and there was no chance of an accident. My question is, who has made the transition from cars to bikes and either realised your defensive driving skills helped you on a bike or realised you were not at all defensive in the car and now had to be?
