Bicycle Laws: An Inappropriate Response
An interesting article from BicycleLaw (courtesy of EcoVelo)
It’s worth a read, if you’re a cyclist be careful out there. If you’re a driver, be careful out there.
We need to look out for each other, being inside a car seems to alienate oneself from the outside world — it happens to me when I’m driving around: tempers flare up faster, it becomes more and more about what I need to do and how fast I can get there, it’s generally a complete opposite of when I’m on my bike.
It’s an interesting mentality switch. I think it means I just need to bike more.

Hoping it gets some momentum in Wisconsin, the safety statistics are extremely interesting.
