As I locked up my bike afterwards, the motorist got out of his car. In response to my comment "I probably scared you as much as you scared me." He said he hadn't seen me. Hmm.
The reminder came about ten minutes later, as I was sipping my coffee on the patio. Another motorist, parked one spot over, backed out of her spot, across the traffic-way, and crashed into a large grocery cart corral. I was reminded of the many cases in which motorists crash into the backs of police vehicles, or fire trucks, not to mention the many paint scrapes one sees on poles and various road barriers.
