pedestrian in pain

Ya word to that. I was hit by a car last week on my bike, and twice the week before that I saw a car swerve up over the curb onto the sidewalk. This is kind of a party city, lots of drunk drivers. We gotta keep our eyes open, those death machines are everywhere and I am tired of hearing that another of my friends, or friends friend, is in the hospital, or dead. This is the #1 bike city in the country; ride your bike, less people will die.
