Re: I was hit by a car last night...
You're not really clear here did the cop suddenly turn right while you were behind him? Or die he turn left in front of you? If he turned right they'll say you were following too close. If left he's total at fault. All to often drivers think we're a regular bicycle. They don't realize how fast we're going and pull out in front of us. Unless you're meeting Florida's moped requirements you could have been charged with operating an improper vehicle on the public roadways. So if you aren't meeting Florida's moped requirements its a good thing you didn't push the issue.
