    Don't do it. Too risky as today's phone are too big. Keep the phone in your pocket and just get a bike computer.

    ^^^This.

    There is only so much that a cyclist can do. The use audible warnings may not be registered by all, but at least doing so can hopefully counter those "I have no idea that a bike was...

    Glad to know that all parties seemed okay. I also suspect that a simple bell would have prevented this. Why isn't it required on all bikes using the trails? Good to see that you choose to refer...

    Of course. One should avoid doing so and refrain from mis-quoting others.

    Here you go, if you believe in the data published by the US government:

    https://www.ntsb.gov/investigations/data/Pages/Data_Stats.aspx

    I suspect many new traffic laws were added every year, and...
  8. There must be sufficient clear line-of-sight...

    There must be sufficient clear line-of-sight distance for a vehicle to overtake another, so even if one spot looks clear, it may not be so few hundred feet ahead. For instance, even at 25MPH, one...
  9. I can assure you that this is not the only law...

    I can assure you that this is not the only law being ignored by motorists.

    More bicycle laws are NOT going to make things safer; they simply add to confusion and ignorance.

    ^^^ This is spot on. I do the same, particularly around blind curves.


    The rub here is "but only when safe to do so", and I have no confidence on drivers' ability to make that judgement. ...

    The postings here so far clearly demonstrated the problem with the current bicycle laws - vague, inconsistent, and open to interpretation. The only consistency is that these are guaranteed to change...

    Again, why is there a double yellow? It usually means that there is insufficient line-of-sight for safe overtake. By passing this law, a driver may legally be able to cross it, but it does not...

    Basic road cycling etiquette calls for switching to a single line whenever there are cars back. Insisting on riding two abreast while holding up traffic sends the wrong message and perpetuates the...

    "The vehicle involved in the crash drove away from the scene but was later found...The driver...is cooperating..."

    Hopefully from behind bars.

    Wonder how many environmental variables were considered in the simulation... On the drunk driver example, what if there was another oncoming car behind the drunk driver? How would Waymo choose...

    I believe this is one of the biggest and busiest there, so I suspect what's shown is the norm there.

    I'm surprised that it's only 8%. Can only imagine what that number will look like if that same intersection existed here.

    This is a good example of having acute situational awareness and devoid of...

    Stop signs? Yield signs? Traffic lights?

    No. This is how it should be done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAjP5IL56Yc

    Either way, the RoW is the basis of most traffic laws and requires the knowledge of how this is applied in order to be a safe user of the roads.

    Another practice that I wish motorists would do...

    I guess I should qualify my previous statement with "when there are others". If there is no RoW decision involved, who cares?

    Perhaps this has less to do with "bike" laws, but rather more with the core principle behind majority of today's traffic laws; who has the Right of Way. Having a clear understanding of RoW is the key...

    I am not aware of any ordinances in the surrounding jurisdictions that require a cyclist to ride in the PBL. If so, can someone please share that link with me?
