Re: It's not the riders I'm bothered about

Last year, I was driving and almost hit one of these idiots. It was a 25 MPH zone and I was going about that. From over on the sidewalk comes an idiot with one of these things and not wearing a helmet. He darts on to the road, not bothering to look if traffic was coming. I had to slow way down to avoid hitting him. These idiot was weaving erratically, he even ventured into another lane for a bit. Finally after about 30 seconds he decides to look behind him. That when he sees me, and then immediately darts back on to the sidewalk, where he almost hit someone. I didn't see anymore because I was finally able to resume normal speed and escape him.
