I was taken out by chip sealing a couple of years ago.
They had put up ONE warning sign 1 mile before and the truck had dumped all the chips in the last half of a sloping turn in a thick layer.

It was like riding on a carpet of ball bearings and I found myself sliding on my back, dragged forward by my left ankle wedged under my 600 lbs scooter, until it came to rest at the side of the road.

I kept honking my horn until a man came out of a nearby house and lifted the behemoth off my ankle.

Luckily I was ATGATT including heavy boots, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten away with only burst skin and a nasty wound infection.
