Yes, you are cyclist and you are fucking up.
Sergey Sobolev

Where I live, at least four cars roll through every red light, everybody drives above the speed limit whenever they can, and unless there’s a backup, most people merely slow down at a stop sign. I’m guilty of these things, but unlike a lot of my fellow drivers, I don’t think of a bike lane as a place to park my car or drive whenever it suits me.

Yes, a lot of people who drive 20-pound bicycles could do a better job with the rules of the road. But so could the vast majority of people who drive two-ton cars, including the SUV that rear-ended my bike on an otherwise empty street last summer. (I managed not to fall, and no harm done, so I was far luckier than most cyclists who get hit by cars.) So who’s the bigger danger?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
