I questioned whether or not it was a full moon, and it was (I saw it this morning). I got into a "collision" with a cyclist yesterday. I wasn't charged because he didn't see me, and I didn't see him until just before the moment he went into me, screamed at me "watch where you're going!", I called the police and ambulance, and I received no charges. It was clear from the marks on my drivers' side bumper that the guy hit my driver's side and not me hit him (not to mention I was well back from the stop sign just completing my stop, thank heavens because he would've been hurt). He was also coming off the sidewalks, trails a blazin', to cross the street on his bike - which is illegal. The officer I dealt with did his best to calm me down (I felt sick to my stomach, this man could've been killed had I not been slowing down and driving at about 10km to stop) and pressed no charges on anyone. It was clear that the cyclist was too far inward, about 5 feet before the stop sign (about in line with the sidewalk, which is why I wasn't charged), and he came over to me and apologized later. I accepted, only concerned that he would be okay (he waved off an ambulance and walked/rode away). But, now I'm worried he'll go to my insurance company, and it's ALWAYS the driver's fault here regardless of the fact that he went into me (the marks on my side bumper proved my point). I'll have to fight with my insurance company to have it investigated because I was not in the wrong. How could a driver be at fault when they're T-boned? I asked the officer that question and he said, as far as he and the three other officers were concerned, I was not at fault, but insurance is very different from HTA. MTO and insurance's extortion on Ontarians will make sure money is made somewhere, however. My car's wheels don't turn sideways. It's front and back. Which means, he hit ME. Meh.......Insurance rules are so messed up here.
That was so close. I am still kind of sick over it this morning. Despite the fact that I didn't do anything wrong here, I would have an extremely difficult time continuing on normally if someone was seriously hurt.
