Was coming home today evening along Alexandra av towards city. As I was going through the bit where all the car parking is I saw pedestrians trying to cross the road through one of the pedestrians crossing. So obviously I slowed down to a stop to let them pass while vigilantly checking my rear mirror to make sure the car behind was slowing down as well. Then just as I was about to take off I heard a huge bang behind me and I knew someone was rear ended. Looking back it was the car behind me that got rear ended and looking at the damage on the bumper and hood of the car who rear ended the car behind me, it was probably a good 20-30kph at the time of impact. I was probably lucky that I didn't get hit at all. If the guy who rear ended the car behind me didn't manage to see a car(a mid sized SUV), what were the odds of him being able to see me if I was in front of him? Or maybe even worse what were the odds of him seeing the pedestrians crossing the road ... Although I always thought filtering was safer regardless others say, this really opened my eyes.
