The other day I was riding home and it started to rain. I was on a section of divided highway with two lanes of traffic going my direction. At about 75 MPH I look down just in time to see i'm running over a paddle that fell out of a boat being towed by a truck a few vehicles in front of me. it kicked up and flew into the lane behind me, but no damage to the bike or me.
1) dont' follow the vehicle in front of your too closely, there may be a paddle in the road
2) for all those times you've followed a vehicle and wondered to yourself "what woud happen if that fell out of the vehicle", don't wonder, change lanes.
