I fell over on my moped-scooter, yesterday.
I was on my way home from work, and noticed in the mirror cars approaching from behind. As there was a bus stop a short distance ahead, and an upwards hill (where I'm wont to loose a lot of speed) a few hundred meters beyond, I decided to pull into the bus stop to let them pass.
The bus stop has solid surfacing. On top of the solid surfacing, however, there was gravel. Consequently, when breaking, I slipped sideways, fell and slid. That was not a comfortable experience.
I ended up with quite a lot of abrasions on my left arm/elbow and lower leg - and also a partly broken rib. The doctor gave me the cheerful news that the pain from the rib will just increase for one or two weeks, before letting off again.
