agreed on all points...unfortunately in Hamilton cyclists aren't given a fair shake, especially on major streets like Main, King, Cannon and virtually all the overbuilt 'uppers' on the mountain. Cyclists would love to stay on bike lanes if there were any.
of course helmets are smart and do save lives, but they don't save broken bones, long term disability etc....the types of injuries likely when getting nailed by a car. when I was a kid nobody heard of bike helmets. Drivers were more aware and safe back then. now everyone thinks it's their right to do 80km an hour. My wife and I were noticing how bad it's getting on the mountain and other 'overbuilt' suburban areas now. She was up there recently and was going 60km an hour...everyone was flying past her. not just one or two people, but the entire flow of traffic. I've noticed the same thing too up there over the past couple of years. Drivers are out of control and kids are dying because of it.
