Advocacy & Safety - Michelin and "Share The Road"
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
It is always heartening to me when a global company such as Michelin takes an interest in making the roads safer for all users.
In the meantime, ride safely!

Cool. I just forwarded that to my state bike coalition (http://www.bikemaine.org/), who have been pushing the "Share the Road" slogan hard for several years now.

This is stupid. They're just trying to come up with high-tech ways to keep people from getting doored. We don't need a high-tech solution. Here is my low-tech solution:
1) If you're attempting to exit a parked car, look back before opening the door.
2) If you're passing a parked car, stay out of the door zone.
3) If you're designing a roadway, don't put a bike lane right next to a parking space.
Education and enforcement is what we need, smarter people, not smarter cars.
