Riding home tonight around State Circle, someone in an SUV coming out of a side street didn't see me, ended up locking up his brakes and, fortunately, stopped just beside me. He didn't come too close to hitting me and I did see him coming, so overall it wasn't too bad an incident.
Anyway, after letting me past, he pulled up next to me and wound down his window. Thinking I was about to get a blast of "Get off the road you stupid hippy!" I was very surprised when he apologised saying "Sorry about that, I did see you through that pole". Although a pretty lame excuse (if you can't see, don't assume you can go), I'm impressed a bicycle rider got an apology from an SUV driver.
