This reminds me of the prevailing attitudes towards female victims of rape and assault prior to the Take Back the Night marches of the '70's and '80's. Now we recognize that women should have the right to leave the house at night without fear of assault and harassment, but prior to that, the consensus was that any woman crazy enough to walk around after dark, got what she had coming to her.

It's time to recognize that cyclists and pedestrians have as much right to use our public thoroughfares as cars, and their safety is a collective responsibility.
