"We are going to address bike safety head on and we are going to pull from all our resources to do it."

The freakin' country is owned lock, stock, and barrel by China and this is what this member of Obama's Cabinet focuses on.

Meanwile, Mayor Archie is orgasmic with joy and says the streets of Minneapolis are again safe for all the gun totin' gang bangers.

Bike safety 101/A: Cars are a lot bigger than you and cannot stop on a dime. Try to stay out of the way.

Bike safety 101/B: Stop for the damned light or stop sign. It is the law.

Bike safety 101/c: Passing on the shoulder is illegal and doors hurt.

Bike safety 101/D: Most people in cars do not want to go through the hassle of hitting a bike or it's rider. Do not temp fate because you "have a right" to be on the road. You know, like cars and trains.

True, but it's worth 50 points if you don't damage the bike.

When riding a Bike I am the ONLY person that is important.

My Honda does NOT generate ANY pollution.

Hauling a canoe to the BWCWACWASKWCAXAXYZ and paddeling around pristine lakes does NOT cause pollution.

A windmill generates all the electricity I need on a calm day.

Solar power works even on a cloudy day.

Everyone in the USA can use a bike year round for transportation.

There is no need for highways OR airplanes, all shipping can be done on bikes.

All heating needs can be provided by solar power.

Everyone should live in tall buildings alongside the LRT.

Life should be limited to the gay lifestyle and pot and cocaine for food.

They get to DICTATE their lifestyle on everyone else.

for those who think that paved roads were made smooth for cars. better do your research. they were made that way for bicycles. and unlike a driver's license. bicycles do NOT need a license to be operated.
.
for those who do drive. remember YOUR driver's license can be revoked at any time the govt feels that it should be.
.
http://www.theurbancountry.com/2011/07/roads-... We have all heard the tall tale that roads were built for cars, so bicycles and pedestrians have no place on our streets. Perpetuating this myth might help some motorists sleep better at night to think that they have an exclusive, god-given right to our streets, but it simply isnt true.
...Motorists dont have an exclusive right to our streets in the first place. Driving is a privilege that is granted only to those who earn it (and the methods in which the government grants this privilege is questionable). That privilege can be revoked at any moment too, by the way.
.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/bike-bl... Car drivers assume the roads were built for them, but it was cyclists who first lobbied for flat roads more than 100 years ago.
.
http://lhtac.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/T... The bicycle played a critical role in getting Americans out of their homes and onto the open
road, said McNichol. Bikes became a practical form of mobility; however, outside of urban
areas, roads were unpaved and often dangerous for riding. With people getting out of their
cities on bicycles, they began to see a need for paved roads for the first time.
The Good Roads Movement began in the 1890s in response to poor road conditions. Bike
enthusiasts worked at federal, state and local levels for road improvement legislation.
According to McNichol, bike riders became the first road lobbyists for government money.
.
for those who think my license was revoked. nope, I stopped driving voluntarily a few years after becoming disabled. since it became too hard for me to drive the car after that.

How did the 28 year old woman bike rider on the Muderapolis roads in the dark without Nanny state required lighting OR reflective clothing OR helmet do against a car driven by a drunk illegal alien Mexican?

RIP, she deserved better.

It's all about physics. These days it's about people operating hazardous devices while texting, cell phoneing, internet surfing, tuning radios, etc etc etc.. WHILE driving a car, riding a bike, walking scross a busy road, some are drunk.

See them every day, they are out there and will kill themselves and others over and over.

In this case an illegal alien was driving drunk killing the woman.

maybe not everyone is aware of the nanny state's stuff on night time biking.
.
currently and thank goodness there is no law for bicycle riders to have a helmet on while operating a non-motorized bike.

Well, you at least admitted by your statement that you only pretend to know stuff. Shouldn't you be getting back to your whacking in the bushes?

There you go slew slew, pretending to know stuff again.

I'm a bike rider.

Everyone is supposed to see me, even when speeding between parked cars.

If you don't see me I'll bleed all over you.
