It was good up to the last two paragraphs...then you basically lost all the credibility you got from the first part. Ban cars during bad weather? There goes 70% of your support base. Do you really expect all the drivers who use remote starters and stuff to willingly give up their cars to take a stroll in the middle of a blizzard?

More dangerous to be in a car than on a bike? There goes your credibility. Bicycling in its own sense may be safer, but in traffic, you'd be way more likely to survive a crash with 3000lbs of metal protecting you. The fact that cars cause the injury and harm does not change the fact that injury and harm occurs.

I agree with your statements (except the 'safer to bike' thing), but trying to convince the general, driving public that its better not to drive in a storm is basically talking to a wall.
