Getting hit by cars is a drag, i have been three times now and am lucky as hell. i have a titanium tibia, two screws, slight back problems, and chronic road rage, sustained from these accidents. two of these jerks will be paying higher insurance payments.
When your riding a tiny moped you have to be extra careful. I try to assume that no one ever sees me, and will totally run me down if i am on an intersecting path. i grew up in new jersey where left hand turns on roads more than 25mph are illegal. sure enought in savannah GA were i live now i get whacked by some doosh blowing a yield, making a left. the other night i got REAR ENDED @ A STOP LIGHT!?! by some nut w/ 2 cell phones and a crying baby. i called the cops, said " idon't need an ambulance just get someone down here to give this dumass bitch a ticket."
there isn't much you can do other than riding safe and making yourself very visible. on your matte black bike w/ one 6 volt led, at night with all black clothes and a novelty nazi helmut. among other things, i have a bunch of leds on my helmet, brighter taillight. i'm just too cool to rock a saftey vest. and i ride almost 24 hours a day. i ride a tgb 101s a lot it has a model t ooga horn on it and a set of fog lights on the handle bars. my puch only gets rid during the day lately. it's fucked up.
there should be a forum called MOPED SAFETY, but no one would post anything. safety is some shit that i hate to worry about. i'm mostly concerned with: going fast as hell, riding a ped to work everyday,and getting it there with the same number of nuts and bolts as when i left, girls on mopeds, beer, deathmetal, you know, not worrying that some piece of shit with a cell phone and a suv who is going to murder us and KEEP ON DRIVING LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. your a bug on their fucking windshield. mopeds rule/cars, for assholes.
always sue those guys, they need to be sued, insurance companies are designed for this, if they have car insurance you get some $, depending mostly on the severity of your injuries. in an accident w/ 2 cars you would get a property damage assesment, but courts think mopeds are stupid, most of the time. there are shitloads of dumass lawyers eager to go take these dicks money and give it to you. i've heard of people, injured by jerks, let it go because sueing people is't very gangsta or punk rock. If you don't sue them your screwing up the natural order of things.
or be squished.
