An accident caught on dashcam might be all the reminder cyclists need of the importance of obeying traffic signals.
The video uploaded by YouTube user MrNaDF shows a car screech to a halt as it narrowly misses a cyclist running a red light. The car in the right lane was less fortunate, t-boning the rider and tossing his bicycle clear across the intersection.
Miraculously, the rider can be seen getting right back up after rolling across the windshield.
The incident occurred at Lyon Street and Laurier Avenue West in Ottawa, and the video, posted on July 15th has now been viewed nearly a million times.
Just a friendly reminder to obey the traffic signs…
