Another close call

I almost got nailed by a car, again. This time it happened on what I think is one of the safest parts of my commute. I guess you can't take anything for granted. Anyway, I was climbing a steep hill (10+%) on my way home and riding on the sidewalk since I was moving so slowly and traffic tends to fly up this hill. I have an insanely bright headlight and wear bright green and white clothes. Yet, given all of this, somehow, someone decided to turn into a driveway just as I was crossing in front of it. It happened so fast I didn't see it coming, but he stopped so close to me I felt the heat from the engine.

Grrr... why don't people pay attention...
