    No more ridiculous than thinking a camera can protect you in case you are hit by a car. And I have seen very few posts where a gopro was used to witness for assigning fault in a bike/car collision.

    Boos is just reporting, Marshall is the researcher who did the survey. So it makes sense to quote the PhD since he authored the darn thing. As far as the reference to the Netherlands, it a statement...

    Totally depends on the rider and their priorities. While one rider may be perfectly comfortable with the risks with a 40 mph downhill ride, and takes appropriate precautions, another may decide the...

    The derelict driver and his crimes had nothing to do with bicyclists, so how do you conclude the Judge has biased versions of cyclist? Who shot the Kennedys?

    I'd say that since most if not all States recognize bicycles as vehicles, they are legally obligated to ride with the flow of traffic, not against it.
