    I'll make some comments connecting the different parts of your post, and the link to UM/IM coverage. If the rest of the medical, insurance and legal system worked, having your health insurer...

    I still don't understand what insurance rates you are concerned with.

    Most of the readers and posters on this list are likely to own cars and have auto insurance policies, so the links regarding...

    I haven't ridden the bridge since 2007 - it sounds like the road surface has gotten substantially worse.

    I also used the bridge because it was the only legal route over the Susquehanna, and...

    what state are you in?

    I'm sure this is not true in some states I've lived in, but it depends heavily on state regulations for insurance policies, and also possibly on differences in contracts...

    I bicycled across the US 1/Conowingo Dam in 2001 and 2007; from Bikenh's comment it was legal in 2015 also. My impression is that it easy for the MD SHA to restrict toll facilities to motor...

    It's been a while since I've done lots of bicycling in Boston (moved away 20 years ago, back for a week in 2009), but I'd still say if you're used to bicycling in NYC or Philadelphia you won't have...

    There are no bridges you can legally ride or walk across south of Philadelphia. The Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) does not allow bicycles on the roadways of any their bridges (including...

    In theory, there is no reason this doesn't apply to bike lanes, or any bicycle specific markings/facilities, or even marked crosswalks. There is a small but noticeable number of motorists that...

    Once it falls below 20-25 F, I find mittens are warmer than any gloves I've found, and that I want wool socks and wool hats. I find 100% wool to be notecably warmer than the wool blends I typically...

    Our bike lanes are useful in Jan and Feb, just not for bicycling. Snow in the road is plowed into the bike lane, so the bike lanes gives DelDOT a place to put the snow. Of course, this means that...

    It's great that things are fine in Kent, but has it occurred to you that maybe it's not "baggage" but different law enforcement and different motorists?

    It depends on what you're comparing it to. In states with FRAP, the exceptions are too complicated for average motorists to figure out, and most don't believe they exist.

    Since it fits and you want to use it for short commutes, I think you'll get what you want. Not a waste of time.
