Bicycle Safety

If you're going to go for a bike ride on a lovely warm day, please bear in mind that you must follow the same rules of the road as the cars traveling alongside of you.

...that includes not running a red light on a BUSY street with your wife(?) and kids in tow. People around here quite often exceed the speed limit (which is 45mph on that road) and seldom stop for someone like you.

...and drivers, when there is a bicycle lane adjacent to where you are parking, check your mirror before you open your car door. My good friend really did NOT appreciate the broken collarbone someone gave her because they didn't look first and opened their door right when she was passing by...and got off scot-free from any charges.
