Almost got rear-ended HARD
Man, this world is completely full of idiots. I was riding into town from a canyon road when i come upon a crosswalk. I am a good distance from this crosswalk when I see a pedestrian trying to cross. I start to slow down and I did give the driver behind be plenty of time to stop. He was driving a work truck Ford F-450 workhorse, commercial styles. To make this short, the driver never saw me slowing down. I looked into my mirror and saw him coming up FAST! I saw the ped was just barely out of my way (hadn't past in front of me just yet) and I sped up and cut off the pedestrian partially. He gets pissed off at me (called me "fucker" when i passed him), and when I look back, he had to jump back from being hit by the truck. And yes, the truck stopped about 20 feet past the crosswalk. And I"m the one getting yelled at! At least he knows why i had to cut his butt off. Loser!
