Riding in to uni, morning peak hour, nice day same as any other. going into town the traffic banks up between the lights as usual. All us riders know that traffic can stop suddenly at any moment, but car drivers don't. So i see the traffic stop ahead of me, come to a stop, and check behind me. The guy behind me is going traffic speed so i look for escape routes, move the bike to aim it at the gap on the left (in the left lane) Then i look back again to check, TOO LATE, the guy has swerved into the other lane to avoid me as he flies past and stops in the middle of the road in shock. Luckily, me moving over and him swerving avoided a crash thank ****. but i still made a few mistakes *i could have gone a different route to avoid that traffic. even if it takes an extra 5 minutes AVOID THE TRAFFIC as much as you can. *when i saw the traffic stop, i could have predicted the ******** and quickly moved to the other moving lane, i would have had time for a head check, but you have to decide instantly. *IF you see someone that you don't think will stop TAKE ACTION NOW, i moved a little and checked on him again, but by then it was too late. you don't have time to check twice, take action instantly thankfully i moved just enough, but i should have taken full action and filtered past the car in front. (normally i don't filter) Avoid any traffic if you can, be prepared if you can't. Get ready to avoid a crash, any hesitation and its too late.
