So, it's a beautiful day and I decided to take my ol' scooter out. Plus, I look cool on it. Anyway I'm at a stoplight and there's a van in front of me, with a bumper sticker that says "choose life, your mom did". When the light turns green, I go through and get in to the 3rd right lane (my scooter can only top out at 42 so the can was pretty far ahead of me). As I'm approaching the next stoplight (where he's already stopped at) he decides to get over and almost side swiped me!!! And he didn't even realize it! My heart was pounding but all I could do is laugh. How ironic that I was almost killed by a van with a pro life sticker.

 I love your sense of humor and ability to laugh at stuff like this.  I'm glad he failed in his mission to take you out. Cuz you were obviously on your way to an abortion party. ;-)

You have to be very careful of blind spots when you ride, especially vans and trucks. There was a meme showing blind spots in a truck vs bikes, scooters count in my book. I will find it.

These are semis I realize but really vans trucks even cars have spots where riders cannot be seen.  The first meme is minus the text but all of thos bikes are invisible to the driver of that truck.

Stay safe and enjoy the ride:)

Oh I know! And I usually am! He was already stopped at the light so I figured I was good. Nope.

I know, right? Didn't use a blinker at all. And then I honked at him but it's a scooter horn. It sounds like a beep lol. Hard to angry beep at someone.

All I could do was laugh. I just kept imagining what the headlines would say.

There's been a lot of CM today about over sharing, speaking of, were you high when this happened?

 I am glad you are okay.  You have to be careful when riding low profile/small vehicles.  I almost ran over a girl on a small atv.  She wasn't in my mirror or my line of sight.  It scared the crap out of me.

You might think of attaching one of those orange flags that is on a little pole.  I see those pretty frequently and I think they help.
