1/2 of the population is below average. Unfortunately they've found the Internet and become partially educated. Seems the lack of focus on individual responsibly and the focus on victim "responsibility" expands every year.

I don't know why state governors don't have psa's on TV regarding the rights and responsibilities of motorist and bicyclist. I think that psa's regarding the rules and laws could go a long way in educating both road users. They seem to be able to spend thousands of a dollars year telling people not to drink and drive and to wear seatbelts why not tell people that bicyclist belong on roads. I don't get it.
