Hit and Run!

Saw a scary video today on YouTube of a hit-and-run accident in Berkeley, California. (2:35)

This is the type of accident I fear the most in Taiwan - hit from behind, while riding where I should be. There's just nothing you can do about it.

A cycling friend of mine has been hit twice from behind by scooters in Kaohiung; though neither of them tried to flee the scene.

The pair of cyclists who got hit in this video took an unbelievable amount of abuse in the comments section because they blew a couple of stop signs. The thinly veiled anger many drivers have toward cyclists always amazes me; how dare cyclists make nuisances of themselves on THEIR roads.
