So, Where I live, (its been a while since i posted, :-) there's a fair deal of cyclists. hu huh, therer's also a fair deal of SUV's. And by SUV, i mean Stupid drivers that don't watch out for cyclists and sooner or later i'm gonna end up Under the wheels of their Vehicle. SUV's. There was recently, like 10-11 months ago, a huge shopping center constructed not 5 miles from my house. Now, there's like, a grocery store, the equivilent to several strip malls worth of stores, and needless to say many many peds. I'm thinking of going around putting up flyers (with consent of store owners/managers) that basically say 'Watch out for cyclists, Drive Safe' maybe have just a few VERY simple law-reminders. y'know, 3 feet, cyclists have the right-of-way, stuff like that. then maybe a ratio, like how many cyclists are killer per year due to wreckless drivers and whatnot. I don't expect this to do much, or people to even read it, but after a near fatal accident i feel sort of...not obligated, but COMPELLED and maybe inspired to do SOMEthing to help prevent vehicle/cyclist accidents. SO, if anyone has any ideas, c'mon an share! I'm just trying to keep it simple, i figure people aren't really gonna wanna read something if they really have to try! lol. thanks all.
