    I see, though you are from Vancouver (visited there last year, wonderful city!) but I think in my area (Orange County, CA) it's a very different ballgame. Its mostly spread out suburbs, and the set...

    Some years back my city implemented a mandatory bicycle registration system. It was a complete waste. The money that people spent for their bicycle registration tags did absolutely nothing, and had...

    I cycle about 2,000 miles a year on the streets. The only collision I've ever had was when I was hit by a car while riding on the sidewalk. Old lady in a sports car not paying attention. There's just...

    Okay, so you're saying the driver was wrong, and he made a mistake. You are choosing to "absorb his wrongness" by blaming yourself.

    If a driver is texting his buddy while driving and swerves off to the right and hits:

    A) Your car. Then he is at fault. He's responsible for his mistake. He has to pay the damages.

    This is one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever read on this forum. If a drunk driver runs you over and kills you, it's your fault because you chose to ride a bike? Would you say the same to a...

    I don't get what the "second class service" is? That there are more bikes on the train than usual? How is that significant? Isn't he just going to sit down on a seat until his stop comes?
