Hey, that sounds great. Where's your checkbook??
I think you have a fine idea if it was dangerous to cross the road even after coming to a stop and looking for traffic due to a sharp curve or hill, but those situations are very rare. The collision on the bike trail above was the result of the cyclist not following the rules of the trail, specifically, to stop and look for traffic at road crossings. The cyclist should be ticketed for failure to yield.
When an irresponsable cager hurts or kills a cyclist, we scream for justice. When an irresponsable cyclist hurts or kills themselves we want stop lights for the cagers - give me a break!
