    Default Two Seconds Close Call

    Riding through Mosaic this afternoon we were just about to cross Gallows Rd with a green light when a car ran the red and got t-boned by the car in front of us. Looked bad, but everyone walked away.

    I hope that you are ok, and were inside a hunk of steel w/ four wheels, rather than on top w/ only 2 wheels, when that went down

    Cannon and I are fine, we were on bikes. He was busy calling 911 (or telling Siri to call 911) instead of continuing through the green light.

    What? I thought having operator's licenses and plate on the vehicles was supposed to prevent such occurrences. That's what the trolls tell us cyclists.
