    A waiver can only waive the rights of the person signing it (and can't always waive all of those rights.)

    Your business could easily be subject to claims from someone other than the person who...

    Illegal in many U.S. states, green is a reserved lighting color for emergency responders, including Homeland Security; not legal on private vehicles.

    I'm familiar with this from photo equipment, but the rules would apply equally to bikes.

    The Montreal Convention limits air carrier liability for passenger baggage on international flights. ...

    As for the reasoning behind paying more for car insurance when you don't have continuous prior coverage, it's all about the numbers.

    Insurance actuaries run regressions against every variable...

    There used to be a few carriers who would sell an umbrella policy including UIM coverage to a non-driver without requiring underlying car insurance. Don't know the current state of the market, I...

    I don't know of any studies that focus only on risk to competent, sober adults with proper equipment, but there are studies on the increased risk of riding without lights, riding while intoxicated,...

    A few clarifying questions --

    Do you accept any sort of financial support for your activities?

    Do you gain anything from this? Donations (money, bikes, or parts)? Advertising or good will...

    At this point, after decades of peer-reviewed public health research on the issue, none of those claims is at all controversial.

    Most studies find dramatic reduction in coronary artery disease...

    Depends on your definition of "safer" -- are you more concerned with *when* you die, or *how*?

    Bicyclists have higher accident mortality than motorists, though not dramatically higher. So if you...

    No, that's not practical, but it's also nonsensical. Shaped beams add very little cost.

    For example, Cateye makes two versions of many of its headlights, a flashlight-pattern model for the U.S.,...

    Decades ago, dropout mounts were available for the old 2.4W incandescent headlights. Mounting the headlight at axle height throws the road surface into more relief. I had one for a big chromed...

    I first became aware of the issue receiving constituent complaints. It's a real issue, just not a very wide-spread one at this point.

    If we wait for voter complaints to drive the issue, we may...

    Actually, it's one of the busiest consumer complaint dockets at the NHTSA and has been for decades, causes enough accidents that it's a standard data field on crash reporting, drives millions of...

    Car headlights were essentially unregulated at first, until they got so bright, 600-700 lumens, that they caused glare issues for oncoming traffic. It then took years to regulate them and transition...

    That's intentional -- smooth sidewalks = slip-and-fall accidents in wet and frosty conditions. Indoor concrete floors mostly don't have to worry about that.

    They aren't having a conversation with you, so when you start talking out of the blue, it doesn't really matter what your first few words are.

    Such a study would be quite acceptable in the U.S., since there's no requirement for daytime lighting.

    But the study probably would have to be set up like the Danish study, making sure all of...

    Either that, or it means that since all of the bikes had lights that could be used at night, but only the study group had daytime lights, having lights at night is no different from having lights at...

    So, by your definition, a four-lane gravel highway simply cannot exist?

    What do you call a road that carries two lanes of traffic in each direction, which has no lane stripes?
