People, just a gentle reminder, when entering any intersection, cover your brakes, slow down and choose the best lane position to be visible.
Almost got into a wreck this morning riding into work. My fault for not being more attentive than I should have been, but looking back I think really only 1 thing prevented an accident. Speed... Or I should say lack of excessive speed. I wasn't going too fast, only a tad faster than flow of traffic. I was going straight through an intersection, when an oncoming car decided to turn left in front of me, he probably didn't see me since there was an SUV that was waiting to turn left going the same direction as I am which probably blocked his view of me. Anyway, he slams on his brakes as soon as he notices me, I hit my brakes, but since it was cold, and the tires were still cold, I sorta wiggled around a bit, but thank God I managed to steer around and avoided his front bumper by about a foot, and rode through. I think if he or I were going any faster, an accident would have been unavoidable.
So, lesson learned... Stay alert out there poeple, especially when entering intersections. Cover your brakes, and watch your speed. It might save you from a wreck. It did me.
