I live in Salt Lake County, just outside SLC.
I have a copy of SLC bicycle law in my wallet.
It says I should have a bicycle license.
Is this even necessary, like similar to driver's license?
Also, what is the maximum pre-caution protection for a road commuter who has to share the road with motor vehicle drivers, who might be inconsiderate or distracted?
In my view, the maximum protection:
Good quality helmet (Giro or similar)
Front and rear electric light
(for "aggressive by being insistent on bicyclist's right to use the road on the right" commuting/road cycling) Elbow and knee pads
Items packed inside backpack or seat bag, i.e. portable first aid kit, multiple-function tool set, tube damage patch kit and necessities
Tightly secured bicycle portable pump (mine was stolen
I have to deal with inconsiderate drivers sometimes. Defensive bicycling is a skill that is needed.
