This is probably off topic, but I''ll try to make it 50+ relevent by the end.
I'm writing from a dry country with very sketchy driving habits. This weekend we had pretty much the annual rainfall. Huge number of road accidents, sadly many fatal.
The traffic directorate commented that this increase was 'caused by the rainfall'. Not caused by uninformed judgements of speed and proximity to other vehicles, lack of understanding of friction as part of safety etc etc
Would a 50+ bike rider say that rain 'caused' a wipe out or collision? I feel that most of us would say that a failure of anticipation caused it.
Makes me want to join our friends in Advocacy and Safety wishing for cycling proficiency permitting a motorcycle license, and motorcycling proficiency permitting a car license. But, that's the way I did it, so I'm biased!
Oh and in a perfect world I'd like free apple pie on demand
