    Eh, doesn't matter, my 401K runs out when I am about 72... I guess I'd better take up smokin' and heavy drinkin'... Gotta counteract all those damn bike commuting miles...

    Put a bunch of poorly made components on an otherwise good frame, and I think you'll have your bike answer.

    As far as people... uh, we are more than just our arms and legs... Just look at...

    Wow, it's that good? I had no idea... I just figured perhaps a decent cardio vascular workout and perhaps the energy of someone a few years younger... but curing invalids... gee I had no idea......

    Perhaps it is more than preaching to the choir... if anyone reads that report and determines that maybe it isn't all that hard to get out and ride a bike after all.

    Of course broadcasting it here...

    The reason some feel so compelled to vilify motorists is they have likely encountered motorists that were somewhat less than cooperative, perhaps even aggressive on the roadway.

    I am too... but hey, you never know when that "get off my lawn" curmudgeon thing kicks in... at 89, perhaps the thinking was... "I just cannot wait for this..."

    But like you, yeah, I doubt...

    I understand that a lot of human drivers are equally confused by the same situation... even LEOs, who may demand that you "put your foot down."

    I kinda wonder if jeichelberg87 is somewhat right... I mean at 89 years of age, would that motorist know of the laws for cyclists on the road? My own father told me he thought motorists were being...

    Why? The bikes are on the main thoroughfare and you are choosing to stop the bikes while the cars on the minor road get a pass... should be the other way around... the cars should come to a...

    I do too. But some spammers use the same area code, and that throws me.

    Not so... that tie can be seen as "too stiff."

    But then the OP mentioned government work... I think those folks still dress in full suit and tie. "Business casual" for them is no vest.

    Funny how that full suit has gone the wayside for all except lawyers and bankers... As an engineer, generally working on a computer, with very very limited customer contact... I wore aloha shirts...

    Well heck, I can block the call on my phone, so it doesn't happen "next time."

    What gets me is the first time... I call these numbers right back after I realize some dunderhead is trying to scam...

    My favorite "do we really need to tell them this" sign is this one:

    501128

    I mean honestly, if a driver doesn't know this, they should not have a license... this is so basic, yet apparently...

    Agreed... as vulnerable road users, we have to work 100% "to avoid the collision in the first place." It would be nice if the other road users put in the same sort of effort...
  18. So is there some place where I can dump a whole bunch of fraud phone numbers?

    These are all phone numbers I have added to my phone filter from callers that are using any of a number of scams... the latest was from area code 732 and was trying to tell me there was a "problem...

    I don't think it is an issue of false security from a bike lane... Anyone entering a major road like that has to give way to traffic on that road to enter... and the motorist failed to do just that.

    Carlsbad California uses an all red walk phase. All motor traffic has to stop in all directions, then peds can cross any way they want. Totally eliminates the right on red potential problems.
