Here's an example why it's so important to always stay alert and be in a position to avoid potential disasters...... So I was stopped at the traffic lights on the way to work, it was lightly raining but the roads were very wet. I see this red Ford ute coming up behind me in my mirrors and it appears to not be slowing down enough, then I hear the ute start to skid....luckily I'm in gear so accelerate forward about 50cm, the ute is still skidding then wham, he nudges me. Luckily by that time he's going less than 10km so jolts me forward only about 20cm, if that, whilst I have my brakes on. Look at the bike appears to be no damage (but will get it checked), get a 'sorry mate' from him, lights change green then I ride away. Moral of the story...stay in gear when stopped and give yourself enough room to take evasive action.....and cagers are reckless!!!
