Was driving my truck up the highway today behind a fella riding a scooter (one of those big ones), we both moved over to the left lane to get off at caboolture when all of a sudden all the traffic in front of us started pulling up quickly, poor old fella on the scooter locked it up and the scooter slid right out from underneath him sending him sliding along the highway right in front of me, luckily I was able to pull the truck up pretty quickly as it was not loaded (it normally weighs close to 45t fully loaded). Got out and checked he was ok and sat him down on the side of the road then called the ambo's. Luckily the only visible injury was a fair amount of skin torn off the top of his right foot otherwise he seemed ok. His pants and shoes were torn to shreds but luckily he was wearing proper gloves and jacket. Anyway I've only been riding for a few weeks now and I'm riding everyday too and from work and its got me worried about just how easy this can happen. I also admit that I haven't been wearing my riding jacket for commuting because I already wear a long sleeve work shirt and the jacket is too bulky to fit in my bag once I get to work (what a pathetic excuse) I think that's going to change now, In a way I'm kinda glad this did happen because it knocked some sense into me.
