Cars drivers can be a careless bunch! And there’s some reason for it.
Sitting in their big protected iron cages with airbags and what not, they don’t have much to wear.
In the event of a fatality, they have too much to protect them! Perhaps, this is why many of them don’t understand how sensitive a place the road is.
They don’t understand how much at risk the motorcyclists are.
Even the smallest of mistakes and negligence of car drivers can be fatal for bikers.
We’ve seen incidents in the past of how drivers have been too disoriented in their phones and have resulted in motorcycle crashes without even realizing.
This particular incident, however, is of plane ol’ carelessness. This idiot car driver was in the middle of an intersection. One moment, he was waiting. And the other moment, he just turned left. He turned left without looking in any of his rear view mirrors!
What happened next? A biker collides into his car. The biker is almost explosively thrown into the air, and poosh he falls on the tarmac.
Had it not been for the biker’s helmet, he probably may have suffered some life-threatening and maybe even permanent injuries. Luckily he survived, albeit a broken pelvis and a fractured ankle!
So, next time you take a left, or even a right, please do look behind. You may just save a life!
