A public service announcement from the Department of Stop Hitting Us with Your Cars.
I seem to be subject to about a half-dozen close calls with motor vehicles a year. I usually report them to the local police or sheriff’s department, but I might as well be shouting into the void.
While it won’t fix the problem, the Close Call Database is a damn fine idea and a start in the right direction. If you ride anywhere there are motor vehicles — and most of us do — then please register and report any close calls.
