    Depends on the speed. The more the difference in speed, the further away they should be. If he was doing more than twice your speed that to me looks a little close. In no case should they ever get...

    Honestly I have no problems with the taxi companies here. Normally on time, and the drivers are mostly friendly. Though most years I don't use a taxi.

    In my city Uber and Lyft are still illegal...

    I had to stop watching at 2 minutes. No wonder so many people hate bike riders. Those kids showed no respect for pedestrians, drivers, or law.

    Want REAL ideas for commuting?

    A good fix would be stopping urban sprawl. Stop building single family housing, or at least severely limit it. Plan for 3-5 story development with ground floor retail. When an area is just kilometer...

    So right. I love my dutch bikes! I just decide I need to go, and just go. No special clothes, No funny hat, No daily maintenance. I just walk out, undo the lock, and ride away. Everything I need is...

    It does make it less useful. How do you carry your briefcase to work? Stop off at the store and pick up a few things. Commuting is not a sports activity and should not be treated as such.

    Yes any...

    Because it's not. That's a sporty bike, not a utility bike. It's built for sport, for speed, not comfort. Anyway, where are the fenders, where are the racks. Not really a useful commuting bike. All...

    "Things your fellow commuters do that annoy you"

    Something tells me that bike will be scrap. Given the damage to me. How I lived.

    First accident.

    Had my first accident Tuesday. It is so scary to be riding along then suddenly wake up in an ambulance with someone telling you you have been hit. I will be out of work for weeks, if not months.

    Cost is the #1 reason. Not having to participate in the daily rat race that is driving and parking is another. Laughing at co-workers when they complain about parking fees and who is going to get...

    Actually a Traffic violation is a criminal act. By definition a criminal act is simply an act that is against the law. I have to question your quote here.

    In places where bicycles and cars mix, the speeds are low. The higher the speeds the more extreme the separation. On a lot of them, the protection is a slight curb, which works fine.

    Always! Both cyclists and drivers. When a bicycle rider runs a red, or a stop sign, they make all bike riders look bad, thus are doing harm to me. Plus it's against the law and we all have the...

    Both parties were at fault here. A turning car must yield to any and all cross traffic, even speeding traffic. That's not to excuse the cyclists behavior though. So in my view the driver would carry...
