I was driving down a small local road in Cypress and as I'm going through a light I'm checking to my right to see if I can change lanes after the intersection. I can. As soon as I refocus on my front view, dude in front of me slams on his brakes. Time slows down. Intensely. I was completely lucid and had the time to think about the impact... 40mph... not good. I thought, I don't have ABS, don't slam your brakes... I tapped them... too hard. Brakes locked, I'm skidding, I slam right. Cleared the rear bumper of the dude by inches. By this time I'm careening into the ditch on the right side of the road, I slam left. I start sliding left into the lanes of on-coming traffic. I SLAM right, and bust a full 180 degree sweep. I come to a rest facing the opposite direction of the side of the road I started on. The people coming towards me are stopping and I put my hands up like WOAH! No one touched anyone. I pulled into a parking lot and kissed the ground.
