It's practicable, but there's more to it.What is Texa's FRAP law? is it practicable or possible?
In particular, if the outside lane is less than 14' wide -- you can ride anywhere you want in it. And most lanes are less than 14' wide, and the lane he was riding on was less than 14' wide.
He also wasn't convicted of violating this law. His court cases have generally been about impeding traffic (basically not going fast enough) and the latest was reckless driving.
OK, but the fact of the matter is that there's no law in Texas that makes this illegal under the circumstances that Bates was in. "Reckless driving" certainly wasn't a good fit, but the judge went for it anyways.I do not think a cyclist should remain in the left tire track or side of the lane when there is no obstruction to prevent from riding on the right side.
That is always true. Rosa Parks wasn't the first person to stand up for black rights -- many had tried before her and gotten beaten, incarcerated, whatever. She was just one of the ones that succeeded and paved the way for future changes.It is one thing to assert your rights to the roadway, but if you're militant about it as chipseal is, even if you are doing so within the limit of the law it can still result in bad consequences.
