So I'm leaving work yesterday about five. I'm peddling up Guadalupe, (if your familiar with Austin it's a busy street) minding my own business, trying not to get hit. I'm cruising north and I pass One of the feeder roads with a stop sign. As I'm passing out of the corner of my eye I see a flash and smack I'm on the ground. I wear a helmet when I ride thank god because this is my nightmare but the story gets worse. I spring up just in time to see the car that had pulled out past the stop sign peeling out in reverse! They managed to hit my back tire and nothing else, but since I was thrown from my bike in an awkward frontal motion, I'm bruised and bleeding and in shock. So I start looking around and no one even bothers to stop to see if I'm OK. Nobody attempted to get the license plate nothing. By the time I realize this the car is out of sight and I have no chance of catching him. I hobbled down the street to a corner store where I sat down and collected myself. I called the wife and had her pick me up. Now I got blood in my jeep and my bike looks like it was involded in a hit and run. I'm sore but I'm no worse for the wear. I thought about going to the hospital but I think I'm ok. I thought about going to the police but last time I had to call them for a hit and run it took them 3 hours, to show up, and a traffic cop was present at the time I was hit! I had been waved through a marathon crossing, and as I made it through a black truck busted an illegal u turn, stopped then pushed my wife's 01 grand am on the curb hi centering me. That time a passing motorist chased the guy down but the second the guy who did the chasing got out of the car the guy that hit me bailed again! The cop that was directing traffic just stood there and even commented to me that the guy was an ***hole before telling me to call it in on my cell phone. I have no faith in the APD.
