So what was I doing wrong:
1st time I was almost hit by a car was when one pulled out on the street from a driveway going forward. They stopped before the street. I was lite up with a front, rear, and side lights. I was also wearing my orange vest as well. If I was on the sidewalk, I would have been creamed.
2nd time I was hit by a car when I was crossing in the crosswalk legally (escorting my kids on their bikes). The guy stopped some distance from the line yet still managed to roll into my side trying to do a right on red.
3rd time I was almost hit by a left turner. I slammed on my brakes, but if they wasn't going fast enough, I would have been in the door. I was coming down a hill with lite traffic. All my lights on, my orange vest, and just before the sun peaked above the horizon.
That doesn't mention the few dozen other times where drivers violate my kids and I right of way when crossing streets.
