We were enjoying a nice Frito Pie at our favorite mountain cafe last week when the owner/chef, who’s a super nice man and motorcycle enthusiast, confessed he’d turned left in front of a motorcycle that morning. He was shaken, ashamed and apologetic: “I just didn’t see him!” His is the typical case. Drivers don’t do it on purpose, but it happens, and it’s the #1 thing that takes us out. Expect cars to do stupid things. Be prepared. Have good tires and brakes and lights. It’s only going to get worse with self-driving cars. Then again, maybe not?
