also applicable to mindless jaywalking pedestrians with suicidal tendencies.

The only major accident that i had in my 15 yrs of riding bikes was due to this kind of blind spot. It does not even need a cross road for such accidents. I was overtaking a car, I was at 80kmph and the car was 40kmph. There were no cross roads and i had a high divider on my right and so i had no fear of a vehicle crossing. I have had many narrow escapes before so i was using the car as my shield by sticking close to the car. But here in india bikers need to be more careful for other things. It was a dog in the blind spot. It came running very fast and had a norrow escape from the car but i was not no lucky. This was 5 yrs back when i didnt use to wear a helmet. Half of face was wiped out. Blood inside my eye. Inside portion of the lips got rubbed on tarmac, no skin was on left cheek and nose. Half of the left eyebrow was wiped out. But, I am lucky to have no scars left on my face. I learnt my lesson and strap my helmet tightly since then.[/QUOTE]

Let it be our lesson.
