Just crusing along the back streets in Port Coquitlam, when a white cherokee, drives through the stop sign without looking, I brake hard and go to avoid, but the front wheel while under heavy braking, hits one of those patches they leave after they dig a hole that is an inch lower than the surrounding road surface, result, me and bike sliding through the intersection, fortunately the cherokee had hit the brakes at the last minute so I end up in the road 10 feet in front of the car and the bike 15 feet further on. After the firemen and ambulance attendents had finished feeling me up (havn't had this much action on a saturday night for a while) I am left with a sore shoulder and a little road rash where my jacket rode up. Bike did not fair so well, heavily scratched on the left side.
Helmet scratched, as I do recall sliding on my head at one point, jacket scuffed, jeans torn, and boots that I bought literally this morning, scuffed.
The real question here, to all of those here that know this stuff is how ICBC is going to deal with this, I have the info from the cherokee, plus one witness. How does ICBC look upon you dumping your bike to avoid a t-bone. Have an appointment with them on Monday, what do I need to know to avoid getting shafted.
