Hope you can recover some of your losses from that driver. That line "I did not see you" can be decieving. He probably saw you but it did not register. I've had drivers look right at me, eye contact and all, and still pull out right in front of me and then cover thier mouth as if to say oops. For some reason drivers don't like to recognize cyclists. I think I'm going to try that bike horn that sounds like a car.
You gotta get in to get out.
