This is really surprising! As I was coming back from my bike ride I actually witnessed a traffic accident, for the first time ever! It was so unbelievable that the accident happened just five feet on the side of me. It was around 7:40 pm when it happened and it was almost dark outside. There were two cars; the car in behind was a young black woman and the one in front was an older white woman. The cars weren’t going fast as they crashed, which is good. In fact, the car that was in front was almost to a complete stop because there were two cars in front of her that was stopping for some reason. Maybe they were using a cellphone and weren’t speeding up when they passed me. I do know this, I had nothing to do with those two cars crashing because they didn’t really notice me and I had a good shoulder to ride on anyways. The car that was behind was going at 10 mph at the most. I heard a loud glass sound, which only implied that the headlights were broken. No-one appeared to be hurt in the crash. I stuck around for about 30 seconds. Right before I left, the woman in the front got out of her car and approached the driver in the other car. Dang, I couldn’t believe all that even happened. Another thing that happened was when I was almost home, a car was turning and another car was turning the opposite direction and it was just inches from hitting the other car. The driver honked at him and let me pass and he went on his way.
This proves how careful people have to be on the road. It’s a great thing that I don’t drive yet because insurance is expensive, plus with the economy the way it is, too much is going through everybody’s heads that it’s just messing them up. Guys! If you are driving, start paying attention to the road instead of fiddling with your radio and if you are eating, scuff it down afterward, and LADIES….quit using that cell phone and especially texting while you’re driving. I can’t believe how many people do that. Take your time, and when you see someone in front of you suddenly stop their car, you better hit that brake hard and stop before you end up causing an accident. Pay attention everybody. Having poor quality insurance is bad enough and nobody should waste time to clean up such avoidable problems. If you are unable to drive because you are having issues, then you shouldn’t be on the road.
