Not really my near miss, but still. Went out for a ride with a mate today, on the way home we split cause I needed to buy some hinges from the hardware store. I got a red right arrow, mate kept riding through the green. Sitting there waiting, I know the light sequence well at this intersection. Red light comes on, all other traffic goes, then green arrow comes on, yay I get to go. Here a beep from a horn, look over, see a blue boulevard waiting for green light, see a car accelerating toward him then bang, rear ender. Well, i dont get how it happened, but I saw it all. His partner was pillion, not sure exactly how she got hurt but was not good. Freaked me out a bit, but I pulled out in the middle of the traffic to help. I did a first aid course specifically because I had come across 2 riders who had come off, now a third. Well the first aid course paid off, cause I did all the right stuff this time! Anyway, I learned a new lesson today after 10 short years of riding 2 wheels. Next time I stop and am at the lights, I shall stop to either side of where any car might stop. Still shaking my head in disbelief, 12 hours on. Lost a couple of mates on bikes now, its freaked me out a bit.
