Ever notice how many problems are around that 2AM time? If you have to ride at that time all I have to say is wear a mirror. It is WAY more important than a helmet. You need to watch the drunks behind you.
If only someone could invent an invisible paint, radioactive marker, or some kind of scent that would be released when a car hits a bicycle with such a protective feature… some way of marking the driver for the purpose of identification. I’ve been brainstorming this all day, but I’ll just share my thought in hopes that someone else might actually come up with something.
As a victim of a variety of hit and runs, I think I have the right to make a bad pun about them. Also, the guy only suffered minor injuries
Despite Quizbot’s “where’s the statistics!” remark, hit and runs are increasing. (No doubt about that right? cause it’s plain addition)
I think as cyclists increase, so will the number of hit and runs. And rather than approaching every accident as a somber realization of the society we live in and a time for reflection, I’m going to take the CSI-pun-off-the-top-of-the-scene approach.
For example, an investigator on the scene could say while looking at piece of car debris “Neville’s gonna give you up. Neville’s gonna give! Neville’s gonna give!”
