Dragging a bike under the car and not even know it.

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I call BS. I would notice when a piece of shredded tire goes under my car. How can this woman not know it? Where had she been before when she drove home at dawn?

That is the type of thing that makes me hesistant to commute once the daylight cut short.

Driving has almost become a right in this country. There are way too many unqualified drivers on the road who are not only a hazard to themselves, but to everyone else around them.

This type of idiocy is inexcusable.

Unbelievable. Our morning exercise rides start at 0530, same time as accident. It gives one pause even when riding with bright lights. (Niteriders on most participant's bikes; Superflash on several bikes, reflective clothing, too) I'm looking for (will order if don't find it in Lousiville) a Light and Motion rechargeable taillight.
