Don't Trust Motorists While Cycling
Here is a prime example of why cyclists should always act as defensive road users. Never put faith into a motorist, they may not see you or worse may not like your presence. An elderly man struck this woman as he attempted to make an illegal turn. The victim suffered two broken knees, two broken ankles, a broken elbow, broken wrist, dislocated shoulder, and two broken ribs.

I may win the law of the land but I will lose the law of Physics. So yes, always ride defensively.

Quiet neighborhood, virtually no traffic, in fact you see a guy walking his dogs before you see the first moving car (which happens to be the guy who makes the illegal turn).
