Got hit by the back end of a truck today*grumble*

No worries, I'm fine, just scraped my knee a bit, and one of the lights at the back of my bike is broken, but otherwise fine. Guy driving it claimed he didn't see me, makes me wonder if he ever looks into his mirrors, you know the ones on the left side of the truck's cabin(?), and then he tried to go all, you should have been on the right...

When a road ends in a split up left and right side, then if you go to the left, you try and move to the left of your part of the road so it's easier to turn, esp. when it's slippery. You do not go to the utter right of the road *grumble* Idiot should learn to actually look into his mirrors, hell, I was almost right beside him,so if he can't see me that way, then he needs to rearrange his fucking mirrors*grumble*

I got lucky the guy noticed he hit me when I fell, more annoyed than anything else right now.

it is mostly, just a broke reflector and the plastic that holds off mud at the back of my bike is broken. (that and the damn thing suddenly went noisy as hell)

My dad drove trucks for a living for quite some time. He told us stories of quite a few accidents, some the trucks fault and some the other vehicles fault. I just stay as far as possible away from trucks. One of the more gruesome stories was actually not on the road. Guy was backing up for a delivery. Well the garage floor was done but the driveway was still a trench. The guy directing the truck to back up was in the trench. The driver had thought the directer had moved, but he didn't. Crunch >.>

I'm usually very careful with them, I just figured that since I was right beside him, that he would have seen me in his mirror, apparently not so much.
