    Disagree as much as you like. Nothing wrong with that. However, in LA County, the law states Sharrows mean bicycles are free to occupy center-lane on that stretch, without needing to move over for...

    Unless there are additional city/county codes for road markings. This is the same in every state. Which is why the state speed limit can be 70mph, but city streets are 30, 40, and 25.

    Laws get...

    It's not that we disagree, you're just flat out wrong. Even the same sheriff's office tweeted that sharrows mean cyclists are allowed to use the full lane.



    Actually, the LA Sheriff disagrees...

    It's exactly the same thing, and has been supported through the courts as within the authority of law enforcement to issue a citation for.

    I'm not. The question was "Who do I call", however. It's a shame most other cities don't have a similar system.

    I wear cargo shorts, t-shirts, and sneakers on my commute; and have rare issues here.

    Get the car number, and call the Mayor's Helpline. Rectified in under 48 hours.

    No, because I'm not a law enforcement officer.

    The only time I've ever commented was when one older person was using a cellphone, and almost hit me.

    I'll cede that there are some areas that are completely hostile to cycling, in all regards.

    However, those areas, are, by and large, minimal when it comes to the vast majority of people deciding...

    If your road is in fact like the one in the video (Complete with very wide shoulders), I wouldn't have an issue on that road. Might be a bit boring, but boring is better (IMO) than getting doored,...

    Not at all... But, when people consider 3 miles "Too far", and "I just don't feel like it"... That's laziness, no matter how you slice it.

    Shy of one person, nobody has ever said to me they...

    Yes, actually. I'm too damned lazy wash clothes by hand, rather than use a powered machine to do it. I don't run to/fro for work because I'm biking instead.

    Shy of one person, nobody has ever...

    It's also illegal in NYS. As is driving while intoxicated. And, we had a similar story here in WNY like this:

    Third degree burns are just as bad in your mouth, or on your lap. Coffee is not supposed to cause third degree burns, at all.

    You put on shorts for a 16 mile ride? Whatever floats your boat, but even on 20 mile rides, I've not see a need for anything special to wear, except maybe a polyester shirt.

    More or less, the government just ignores cycling. That's more or less, the truth.

    If someone wants one, someone can bring one with them. If someone feels it's not safe enough to ride without a helmet, someone will not ride it without a helmnet.

    However, the litigation would be...
