Most people these days, when presented with a crash in which they are clearly not at fault, tend to lose their temper with the offending driver. Australian Matthew Sant is not like most people. The rider was sitting in traffic, minding his own business, when suddenly he was flying through the air. His immediate response as he gets back on his feet was to give the thumbs up to the guy that hit him.
Travelling along Canberra avenue toward the city in an 80km/h zone. Traffic had backed up ahead and come to a stop. As I came to a stop I checked my mirror and moved to the right of the road in case the car behind wasnt paying attention. I saw him come to a stop and relaxed, looking away. The next thing I knew I was looking at the sky – was the guy three cars back that didnt stop.
The next thing Sant did was to introduce himself to the driver, before going to check out the carnage that led up to him being hit. He is a very lucky guy not to have been injured. His little Honda was not so lucky.
We should all learn to behave like this man in times of trouble!
