Safety at the crossroads
What happens when you stick a crosswalk in the middle of a 55 mph zone?
Drivers: Can you give us 3 feet?
‘ve been buzzed, berated, beeped and barked at by passing motorists (and their dogs). Told to get the *%&@ up onto the sidewalk or the bike path. I don’t carry a tape measure with me when I ride, and yeah, I know everybody’s driving SUVs named after huge ships and mountains. But passing a 3-foot passing distance law – and actually enforcing it – definitely gets the point across: Share. The. Road. New York’s latest effort to follow the lead of 35 other states is mired in Albany politics, as usual. How many more years will it take to make this happen?
Want a new bike? Need a repair? Good luck with that
It’s been the best of times, and the worst of times for local bike shops and their customers.
