Rear ended tonight while doing the madatory stop at a stop sign. It caused me to drop my bike and both the bike and I are a bit bruised. I've not been riding for long but have been driving for 27 years and have never had an accident before. What really has surprised me was the way I reacted since I am usually such an easy going person. I was up and in a storming rage, ranting and yelling at the woman driver about stop signs and three seconds rule, she was so frightened that she locked her doors. When I looked at her trembling, pale sad face I felt so sorry for her that I was aplogising to her. She eventually came and helped me pick up my bike and looked terrified about staying around while my husband came. Took a good 20 minutes for me to notice how bruised and swollen I am. Is this normal?
