Do you take total responsibility for your safety when cycling in traffic, or do you hold others at least partially responsible?
Since I did not originally specify what I meant by responsibiilty, intentionally allowing each person to use whatever definition works for them, I don't see how Pat can assert this (in post #4).Originally Posted by patc
For what it's worth, the meaning I personally have in mind is that used by Robert Hurst in The Art of Urban Cycling, pp 64-67. The key excerpts from that brilliant section follow:
Perhaps Robert's concept reflects a "very simplistic and naive concept of responsibility", but I, for one, find it to be extraordinarily practical with respect to cycling in traffic.Originally Posted by Robert Hurst
Robert is not mincing words, his meaning should be crystal clear to anyone. Read it again and again, until you really get it, take it to heart, and make it so.
