Sure, and more people get hurt using box cutters than dynamite every year, but which injuries do you think are worse?

I'm willing to risk a broken shoulder from MUP madness, I'm less willing to risk getting rearended at 55mph by grandma. I minimize that risk by doing many training rides on the SART, where scenery is the least of my concerns. Besides, the place is practically empty when I'm out there.
