Comment 11612

I agree with the comments that people don't FEEL safe cycling. Our mandatory helmet laws have convinced parents that cycling really is dangerous, and have tricked cyclists into believing that eight ounces of styrofoam makes them invincible. The truth is somewhere between.

The fact is, we don't hold motorists responsible. Note how rarely a motorist is charged in an accident with a bicyclist. Compare that to how a gun owner is charged when his gun has an "accident." We need to hold motorists to a higher standard of how they operate vehicles.
