I was in a motorbike accident on Saturday. A rear ender. I was sitting at a red light in a right turn lane only, when an older woman who saw the green light for going straight was travelling in the right turn only lane and continued to drive through, even though me and a mate who was also on a motorbike, were sitting there stationary. Her mini SUV went right through both of us, and needless to say we went flying. Someone had to chase her down across the intersection to get her to stop. Her first words were "why were you stopped, it's a green light?" WTF!!! Are you serious??? First of all - you are in the wrong fu*king lane to be going straight! AND - even if we happened to be stopped in the lane to go straight, you don't just look at the green light as your cue to proceed, you must look in front of you to make sure there isn't anyone in front of you. These are the drivers we have to contend with on our roads! My bike is a write-off. I'm lucky to be alive, let alone walking. I've only been riding for 7 months, so I'm pretty shook up having this happen. I love riding, but I'm still in two minds if I will buy another bike. I need some time to mull it over.
