Re: “Serraglio

90 percent of accidents involving bicycles and cars are caused by the motorists, not the cyclists. This is according to a recent study published in the New York Times that examined 2,752 bike-car accidents, the article also points out that most people incorrectly assume the cyclists are at fault “- a result of reckless or aggressive riding.” Police handing out citations to cyclists in the name of bicycle safety is not just irritating, it is adding real insult to very real injury. The victims are being punished. The simple fact is that motorists kill thousands and thousands of bicyclists and maim and injure many thousands more while the deaths, injuries and other damage caused by cyclists (even reckless or aggressive ones) occur so infrequently that fatal lightning strikes seem commonplace by comparison. Many drivers responsible for the death of a cyclist receive minor or no citations and I’m not talking about the ones who don’t even bother to stop. The attitude in this country toward bicyclists is as shameful as it is irrational. It is not "your lane" veevee. Whether there is marked bicycle lane or not the road belongs to a bicyclist just as much as any motorist. Cyclists riding two or three abreast are not doing anything wrong in spite of the fact that you might have to slow down a little.
