    Well, that's money well spent. Presumably if they're trying to treat bikes like cars, the minimum speed limit has to be 25MPH, and they can't ticket until 36MPH. I shouldn't have a problem on my...

    They're for helping older riders learn to ride with panniers. :D

    it looks like they're getting rid of the parking also and making that a lane

    This is a favored tactic of the anti-speed-camera crowd. They call for enforcement only by cops, knowing full well that means significantly less enforcement and a better chance to speed without...

    Please stop with the false equivalencies. You're trivializing the real social cost of motorists speeding in order to try to gain debating points. Until you can point to some studies that show some...

    No, that brings us back to the "stupid rules promoted by the automobile lobby to cripple speed cameras" argument. If speed cameras were everywhere, this wouldn't be an issue. But their numbers are...

    You're somewhat incoherent here but I'll try to guess. The backup cameras were already well on their way to becoming standard due to demand (like ABS brakes). They have proven to be fairly effective...

    I have sufficient dexterity with the lobsters. What I'm hoping for is a better balance of windproofness and breathability.

    I have some lobster gloves. They're fully functional, but hot as hell. :) I keep kicking around the idea of bar mitts.

    Here's the thing: I don't think there are many cases where someone gets killed that the other guy says "I didn't think I was assessing the risk and making the appropriate decision". People are, as a...

    You keep saying this, over and over again, ignoring the citation to the Virginia code which was posted more than once.

    This kind of anecdote is trotted out a lot. The reality is that the risk of injury of you is almost zero in that sort of rear-end scenario, but the risk you potentially transferred to someone else...

    In the best case, they're placed where the community asks for them. Unfortunately, the auto lobby makes it impossible for many communities to get them. So in general, they end up where they can get...

    The red light running that people complain about getting tickets for is generally not driving down the road, seeing a red light, and blowing through it anyway. Instead, people complain that they're...

    That's actually a feature, because the "wiggle room" is usually based on things like "that girl is cute" or "that guy is driving while black".

    I'm pretty sure that most cyclists aren't so stupid/hypocritical as you make them out to be. I'm pretty sure that many cyclists advocate for an idaho-style stop in which a cyclist always yields to...

    You should certainly ride where you feel safe. But in general, it's good to encourage cyclists to not ride up against the edge because doing so invites motorists to pass too closely. Even among...

    I'm not familiar with that stretch, but in general: yes, you're supposed to ride over the sharrow, and yes, the DOTs often put them in the wrong place. They do sometimes get them right and seem to be...

    I went past lost rhino yesterday for the first time and was underwhelmed. Are they unaware of the W&OD? Not even a bike rack in their vast suburban wasteland of a parking lot. I did not bother...
