semi-close call on the bike

So, I almost got hit while cycling to work this morning. It was totally not my fault; I was on the sidewalk at the time. A delivery driver hit an orange barrel at a construction site and bounced it up onto the sidewalk at me, and I had to do a complete dodge-duck-dip-dive-dodge to avoid getting smacked. The driver hit two barrels, apparently paying more attention to navigating than driving. On the plus side, he stopped after he hit them. I didn't stop or stick around, but it looked like the construction workers (also narrowly missed) were completely ready to kick the guy's ass. They looked pissed off....
