But Seriously Folks...
"...they step into the bike lane from between two parked cars and they look in my direction, but my big, bright bike, my big, bright light and my big, bright jacket have become transparent."

Does anyone else notice that PEDISTRIANS do not seem to consider bicycles as road vehicles? I have noticed a few times that they will step into the road looking PAST ME at the motor traffic. Maybe they assume the bike will just "go around" them as sidewalk cyclists do.
I ring the bell alot when there are peds around.
What are your experiences and solutions to wandering pedestrians?
