italktocats is proving to be the 'crazy cat lady' who distinctly ignores all evidence unless it conforms to its expectations.
An experiment involving 1845 cyclists over 12 months in a bike-friendly city finds having lights makes a difference? TOTALLY IRRELEVANT! My experiences involving me, myself and I have proven otherwise!
And lawsuit-happy America would never allow such a 'radical' experiment'. What happens if someone in the control group died or got seriously injured due to being less than optimally lit?
