I was hit by a car at the end of September 2016 and suffered a broken vertebrae, collarbone, and 6 broken ribs. I refuse to let this stop me. I hope to make drivers be more careful when on the road. I am not sure how I will do this, but I do try to educate people by telling my story. Despite my high visibility clothing, and it being 2:30pm, this driver who was coming towards me made a left had turn right into me. We have to be so vigilant as we cycle, but drivers should really be paying more attention as well. I could have easily been killed and drivers need to be aware that them not paying attention, could lead to someone's death on the road.
