    genec

    Wow-just wow.Texting and whatever else folks do with their midget wireless hand held computer/internet connection devices -is absolute poison for bicycle and motorcycle riders.

    5am-pitch black except for the lighting which tends to cast shadows which probably-unfortunately- break up the outline of bike rider -rendering him/her a bit harder to perceive.

    Pretty sure NBC recently claimed 70% of folks admit to having texted while driving-so not sure where you get the 10% number.

    But it would be easy enough to slave it to entering the driver's door-the phone that crosses the driver's door becomes disabled when the engine goes on.
    But I would...

    It can be very easy-and cheap-to enforce a speed limit.
    You can easily use RedLight Traffic cameras to do it-no problem.

    No question-roads transportation-are designed for cars/trucks-
    not for bikes.

    Right
    Many of our cities-are 1 story-not 3-4-10-20 like Europe or parts of NYNY.

    No-like I said-in the USA-in dense cities-we choose to walk 1/2 mile trips
    Euros apparently cycle 1/2 mile trips.
