    you mean something like strict liability for violent collisions between vulnerable human beings and people encased in multi-ton metal boxes equipped with seat belts and side/front air bags?
    This is why motorists hate us, and why I've given up riding on the road...You should be ashamed yourself, and you should be reviled by cyclists everywhere.

    The county I live in(the county in which John Allen Muhammad and his protege', Lee Boyd Malvo killed the majority of the thirteen people during their killing spree in 2002), takes the same position as NYC. That stupid 'have to see it to believe it', kind of position. Sure WABA(Washington Area Bicyclist Association) pushed for better laws in DC. But Maryland still has a long way to go. To start respecting cyclists'.

    Edit: Maryland is 'fault' auto insurance state: http://www.all-about-car-accidents.c...auto-insurance

    Therefore, Law enforcement is culpable for going after a cyclist. When it is clear that the motorist is at fault.

    I would believe that any 'lynch mob mentality' is more U.L. and a subjective assessment. You are no more affected than any others on that topic. Whether they is an actual element of criminality in general/'you live in Hell's Kitchen' etc you have two sides to every road. Accidents usually occur due to the faults of more than one when vehicles and bikes are involved or at the least you have learned to watch out more carefully.

    Blaming a problem of the general demeanor of an entire populace is grossly unfair. Examine what happened again and work to avoid whatever you can, then realize that you cannot control the random crap, and move forward.
