Actress Rachel McAdams gave up her beloved bicycle and learned to drive after she was nearly killed in a traffic collision.
The Mean Girls star, 30, was determined to never buy a car and was happy riding around her home town of Toronto, Canada on two wheels until she came close to being hit by a bus.
She says, "I almost got killed. I was trying to ride my bike around everywhere but I went the wrong way down a one-way street and I got pulled over by the police and I almost got knocked down by a bus, so I decided I value my life too much."
