Jeckyll said:Second, you seem to already appreciate the fact that you need to look behind (such as when stopping at lights so you don't get your ass run down by some cager that's not seeing you stop
Yea, I agree with this. When I ride I generally glance behind as I'm coming to a light and while I'm sitting at it, but it's more from habit than actually thinking I can do something if I do see someone not stopping. If I'm sitting at a red light, my only options would be to fly out into the intersection and get t-boned or do a superman dive off my bike and pray that I don't get hit in midair.:dunnoSnookayDCC said:I dont understand all the ppl who post about watching the cars behind them when they stop.
1. What the hell are you going to do if you "THINK" a car will hit you. Speed out from a stop and fly into the intersection hoping to avoid other cars? I cant percieve doing anything that would save you. And then how do you know the car isnt doing a late stop.
