I run, ride my bike and walk over SB, I’m Always aware of cars, and hope they see me. We all need to be aware of each other. The driver is over 60 years old.

It's good to hear he is OK I know not everyone is bad but I have to get out of the way alot on sidewalks by both bicyclists and skateboarders and it pisses me off. Maybe one day I'll get hit I'm already in pain what's alittle more?

He is okay. A little disgusted that someone would brake his window in attempts to harm him. I wasn’t there, but accidents happen, reacting like an understanding human is becoming less common. People get cut-off, block people out, cause traffic jams because you missed your turn, al sorts of scenarios. This could have been avoided if the boy had self control and understanding that accidents happen

I get kinda jacked when someone tries to run me over. There's a gold Porsche 911 out there somewhere with an imprint of my bike pump on the engine cover. The look in his face after he hit me said "I drive a Porsche and I can outrun you 'cause you're on a bike"...until the next stoplight came along!

As a pedestrian and also bicyclist who has had my share of drivers nearly run me down, I get the "road rage" if the skateboarder was hit or nearly hit by the driver. Sometimes, when you have a near death experience thanks to an idiot driver either not paying attention or else deliberately threatening you with his/her vehicle, your survival instinct instantly morphs into utter rage. I once took a chip out of the side of a woman's car by flicking my dog's leash. The thick metal end of the leash made swift and solid contact. That driver cut me off at a green light in the crosswalk and nearly ran down my dog. Without barely time for thought, I whipped that leash and "whack!" It certainly was a satisfying feeling, I can tell you. Clocking someone's windshield with a skateboard may be just a tiny bit over the top, though. And I highly doubt that the skateboarder had the right of way to begin with.
