Prison time is definitely needed.
In my locale:
State-No, But allows the counties to disagree
County-Yes, But allows the cities to disagree
City-The city nearest me says no. But the city just south of me says, yes.
Not just where. Also when, and how.
These helmets do not equate to safety, only convenience.
I don't go by those maps. Because, It is a judgement on the part of someone else. As to what road I should, or should not, feel comfortable riding on. I go by my own judgement call.
This story, indirectly, reminds me of something that happened yesterday. I was on a 25mph four-lane divided road. When a jaywalker started crossing the road as I was approaching. They suddenly...
I got the locale wrong, of the story I remembered.
There was the case in Tennessee, where an elderly lady died. A month after she had been hit by a cyclist on a sidewalk. The 'lane' can't exactly be shared on a sidewalk.
It is a rarity around here. For the police(city/county/state) to give a hoot about anything to do with cycling. Unless a cyclist is in an accident and/or, a fatality.:notamused:
I presume you are referring to the full-length school bus that has has the long end past the back wheels?
I did a local RoS last year(2014). It was probably about 25-30 people. There were two police officers'(not sure if they were county or city) assigned to the ride. I got into an argument with the...
This indirectly reminded me of a local cycling fatality where they were left-hooked. But the difference was, they ignored a red light.
The police's reluctance to take a report shows how much they...
I don't see how. Since I have taken both Judo and Aikido.
The OP should remain ever-vigilant to their surroundings.
Hmmmm....That is subjective to your perception of the safety of cyclists'.
Is there danger, yes. But it shouldn't be approached with belligerent ignorance. You don't have to always pass a...
I hope they catch the perpetrator(s).
There is a 50/50 to it.
OTOH he should have been on solid ground and not near water. Since it seems to say that he lacked experience using clips and he could have drowned.
The flipside is, he...
My condolences to the family.
There have only been two times where I complained to the local DOT about road conditions, and received positive responses to it. I don't call about every lone missing layer of road asphalt. Usually...
The other answer, would be, to not ride over the grates.
If that is a square shape, they could just turn the grate 90 degrees' in either direction. So the bars in the grate are not parallel with the road. Even better, would be to replace the grate with...
Hmmmm......I would rather sit down and enjoy my meal. I don't even like eating in the car. Quite literally, I would feel either way(bike or car), that I was going to 'lose my lunch', and I am not...
Okay. Good point.
