This morning while turning left onto 5th from Oak, after crossing the new rail tracks, my wheels slid out when I crossed onto the concrete.

I slid right under the rear bumper of a large SUV reversing! down 5th Avenue at the side of the street.

I was able to alert the driver by slapping the rear drivers side door, who stopped in time, thankfully.

And yes, it seems simple enough, but watch out, that concrete is apparently more slick than the tracks are. Also watch out for manhole covers.

It doesn't matter that the SUV was pointed in the right direction, he was traveling the wrong way down the street. Sheesh.

Yeah, I think that the only person more surprised than me was the driver.

And to think the whole ride in I was watching every corner and transition because of the rain and the fallen leaves. Once across those tracks the clean, brand-new concrete didn't concern me one bit.

Didn't I tell you "Rubberside Down!"? :confused:

Glad you didn't go under the SUV...
