It looks like my hometown is planning on installing streetcars. Of course, the rails will be parallel to the travel of vehicles on the road. Whereas motor vehicles will have no problem crossing over the rails when changing lanes, a bicycle will have to overcome this hazard.
I'm just wondering about the legality of a city to intentionally install a road hazard? Has anyone ever heard of a city, county, etc. being sued because of a bicycle crashing due to the parallel rails?
