january of last year i was hit after i was leaving the va hospital. A woman in a minivan with 4 kids and on the phone. Turned left right in front of me. I saw it coming so i was able to get my speed down, from 35 mph, and all i could was lean hard left. She hit my right leg and tore up my saddlebag and rear turn signal and scuffed up the engine and transmission cases and front sprocket cover. I didn't even go down, a complete miracle, but she spun the back end around to the left which really put me back upright. It happened so fast it wasn't funny. After i realized i wasn't dead, i looked around for her and there the minivan was in the middle lane, the one for turning both right/left. I called 911 and they were there in like 90 seconds. It was waaaaay fast. I still didn't see the woman so i walked up to the window and there she was still on the phone. I asked her why she didn't get out to she if i was ok, and i kid you not, she said: "i'm not done with my phone conversation". I was stunned. If this happened back in my drunk days i would have beat her senseless for that totally uncaring remark. I'm not like that now but man was i mad. I just walked back to my bike to see the damage and try to get it running again. I told the cops what she said and did not do, like you are supposed to do, and they said they would handle it. It turns out that 2 weeks prior a biker died in a collision not far from where i was and they came running really fast to try to save me, thinking the worst. I didn't have a scratch not even a bruise from where the van hit my leg. God saved me from injury. No doubt in my mind about that. That incident has cemented in my mind that people just don't care about people. If you are in their way they will run you over. It is sickening, but here we are. When i see people doing junk like texting i blast my horn at them and wave a finger. If they give me the look like "screw you" i get their tag number and give it to the cops. I have also found that when i'm carrying a gun in the open people tend to not give me that look. Anyway...yes it's pathetic what these folks are doing.
