to the parents of the 10 year old I almost killed last night

So I'm heading back from Red Robin and I'm on Fair Lakes doing about 30 and coming around the ramp to get on the Parkway when IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RAMP riding RIGHT TOWARDS ME is this little Asian kid on a bike, no helmet, looking like he's riding home from school.
Now about half a second before I saw this kid, I'm seeing nothing but empty space ahead of me as I'm rounding the curve. I'm starting to accelerate because I'm getting on the Parkway 40 MPH, right? The lane I'm in I know has no yield sign, is not controlled by the traffic light and also becomes it's own lane on the Parkway so I dont need to slow down, only take the turn and go! And there's the concrete retaining wall right there on the right so you cant see around it. I'm just glad I pay attention when I drive.......(ok, well at least THIS time LoLz)
I hope you read this somehow. Just want to tell you that yr boy should prolly ride on Fair Lakes Circle and not travel thru one of the busiest intersections in the County like that, is all. Cause most ppl who were where I saw your boy last night.............all they are thinking is "66" or "123", not CHILDREN. Not there, yo.

Seeing anyone bicycle riding the roads of Fairfax is cringeworthy, much less a youngster.

And you're right, Gordo. The last thing anyone expects is to see a kid on a bike.

Ok, I was right there in the lane next to you and saw the whole thing go down. First of all you were doing at least 55-60. And secondly, your stickers had expired. It also looked like you were on your cell phone at the time--probably posting on FFXU. The rest of your story is accurate.

But you definitely DID manage to miss hitting the kid. That was excellent reaction time on your part..

the OP is hoping that the kid's parent might come across his post in FFXU. If he didn't state race, then all you got to go on is age. i don't think he was being racist. If he was, he would have said "this little chink" kid. This is coming from an asian, I didn't find his post to be racial.

Yes it does, because that boy is going to grow up and become another terrible "azn" driver. God help us all.

Two kids on bikes with NO LIGHTS and NO REFLECTORS even (!) wearing black clothes, riding down the middle of Route 7 at Bailey's Crossroads at 3:00 fucking AM.

Almost impossible to see.

Almost dead!

@JC-yr exactly right and thanks :)
@and - the reason I pointed out the race is just as JC stated - and believe me I thought about whether or not I should put it in which is why I posted this now and not last nite. Ppl who are ranking on Asian driving are morons themselves - this aint about racism, it's about better parenting, is all. And I'm betting the parents of whoever that kid was has no f**king clue at all where exactly he was when I almost ran him down.
@Concerned-nope
@Northman-doing 55 around that curve is a good way to end up in the grave. But I'll bite what was I driving?

It looked fully loaded too. You ride in style; I give you that. Dude, if you weren't pushing a 125K+ ride you might not have made it. Until now I didn't know it was you.

Ha!!

I hope you know I'm laughing cause the thought of me driving in a car like that is completely hilarious

only way I'd be in a Benz is if that 125K was the mileage LoLz

I will take a guess, it was at least ten years old, dents on both sides, sun faded beanie babies on the rear window deck and an Obama 2012 bumper sticker.
