I recall almost going headlong into opposing traffic because I wasn't smart enough to realise that I should not have been on a bicycle with labyrinthitis; looked around to check behind me, felt okay, had veered almost into the other lane...that was damn close and both me and the driver of the other car were in shock, never again...sometimes we just don't realise how dangerous even a simple thing is.
True that is Babs. I am glad you managed to survive the close call

Recently here, a distracted driving law came into effect. I am not sure how effective it is tho, because it is engrained in people's mind that it is rude to not respond to text's right away. I see it all the time - people texting while driving. Even pedestrian's do it while crossing the street!

I think tho that booze related accidents are the most loathed tho.
