I was coming up on stopped traffic and decided it was safe enough to split. I slowed down enough to split, but not enough to stop. I remembered I had some stupid cager following too close and was glad to be rid of him. Anyway, I split the lane and behind me I hear screeching tires and a crunch.Michael Moore said:It seems to me the situation that is more dangerous is when traffic comes to an unexpected stop, especially on the freeway. Then if someone rear ends you it'll be more like 40-60 mph! In these cases I like to get to the far left side of my lane, or split, to give the person behind a bit more room to stop (and something else to hit - like the guy in front of me).
I think that guy learned his lesson about following too close to a bike that day >
no one was hurt btw. just the average fender bender.
