To the dump truck driver with the blowout


On Tuesday afternoon, I was cycling on Main Road in Eastern Passage when you passed me. Just as you came alongside me, your right front tire blew out. Thanks to your skill and experience, I didn't even realize what happened until you were well ahead of me. I know how dangerous blowouts can be, and if you didn't react as quickly as you did you could have veered right into me. Maybe saying you saved my life is a bit over the top, but I sure am grateful that there are drivers like you out there who know exactly what to do in an emergency and stay calm under pressure. Thanks!
