    I know some here don't like RoadID products, but I like them for a few reasons. It's a good group, and for me, also local. Last year I found that the owner was out on a local road and helped a rider...

    Frankly, with this kind of incident, he could have been driving down the road and been killed, or at least very seriously injured.

    Just to be clear, I'm not the one that thinks that. That was a quote from his wife.

    Well, there are full blooded Americans that would do this too. But it all adds to it and makes it "easier" to throw in the maximum sentences and not have it reduced or a jury that doesn't agree for...

    The problem with the crossing of the solid yellow is that in many states, it's not specified. I'm in Ohio where it is, if safe to do so. A twisty road where you can't see far enough ahead wouldn't...

    I'm not sure what I'm missing, if anything. Based on the bill, anyone 16 or younger would be required to wear a proper helmet and there would be a fine if in violation starting one year after...
  13. Mandatory helmet for 16 and under introduced in Ohio

    Just as an FYI for anyone in Ohio. This would not affect adults (other than the up to $100 fine).

    But the problem with bike lanes can be that then drivers assume you must always use it, even if it hasn't been cleared or some other issue like bike lane in the door zone etc.

    Keep in mind, at least for Ohio (and probably others), while it is legal at the state level to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk, local jurisdictions are able to prohibit it. In Cincinnati, it's illegal...

    I never really considered how many people don't know what disc brakes are. I saw someone ask them if their Trek Pure was affected.

    I don't think they do cause seizures, as far as I've ever seen, those that are affected have them triggered at a faster rate than bike lights generate. 2-4 flashes per second isn't going to do it.
