Quebec is one of the most cycling friendly places in North America, but many motorists still don't get it.
I was in the Montreal area all day yesterday, and this story dominated the radio news and talk shows all day.
Many of the callers to the talk shows went on about how all bikes should be on the bike path, have wide tires, red flags, yada yada yada. One woman was just livid that bikes just won't get out of her way, even when she pulls right up behind them and blows the horn.
I drive an 18 wheeler, and I manage to share the road safely with bicycles. Then again, I watch impatient car drivers who all seem to be in a rush to get their lives over with all day every day.
Credit to CJAD radio though, they went in depth on the law regarding rights and responsibilities of both cyclists and motorists. Sad that it takes a tragedy like this, but maybe this will help raise awareness for a few at least.
