After nearly 400 posts to the thread "getting hit by a car - is it just a matter of time" I really don't think the question has been answered. I think it is time for a poll to try and get some real statistics! In the past 5 years, have you been hit by a car, or had a near miss? If so, please provide some details about the circumstances (city, country roads, intersection, car, truck, bus, etc) and how many miles per year you ride. OK, so this is not going to be very scientific, but maybe it will give us a sense of how much risk we are undertaking.
