Some people just want to scarper because they think they might be blamed for some reason, or just don't want any type of confrontation at all.
I have heard plenty of stories where people have collided with things that have stopped and blame the person that has stopped?
Happened to me three times.
First time headdown going to work uphill, I used the average 20 mile an hour going to work, But it wasn't very far.
I looked up and didn't even have time to blink, on the boot of the car still feet in toe clips but just stuck there looking stupid, push myself off the boot and onto the floor still connected to the bike, frame was bent and couldn't move the bars.
Eventually shove the forks into a bench seat on the side of the road and yanked on the rest of the bike so I could turn the wheels, rode for three months and then the frame cracked on the way home just put my hand around the crack ha ha.
Examine the boot carefully but not a single scratch can you believe that!
Second time Car came round the corner on the wrong side of the road and stopped dead, went to put my hand on the front brake but no front brake The nipple had popped out, after that decided to oil front cables ha ha.
Fork bent back Guy said are you okay, I just mumbled and dragged my bike home.
Third time on the motorbike, there is a reason why you always keep your fingers on the front brake, car pulled away at zebra crossing and stopped across it, I assumed it was moving off, I didn't have time to move my fingers onto the brake before I hit the back of the car at about half a mile an hour, just fell onto the floor as I had both feet on the pegs to.
Car drove off and car behind me got out and said do you want the blokes number he just stopped all of a sudden, I declined and put it down to experience.
Get well soon.
P.S. The time it takes you to move your fingers onto the brake is too long to avoid a collision sometimes In my experience, you live and learn don't you.
