Bicyclists and the Laws of the Road

Slate wrote a terrific piece on the age-old issue of bicyclists and the challenge of complying with road laws that are designed for cars, not bicyclists.

Sent to Bicycle Stories by North Carolina correspondent Willie Drye.

A bicyclist slowing down, looking both ways and rolling through a stop sign when there's not a soul in sight doesn't get me excited. But the bicyclists around Tampa Bay who bike against traffic and don't wear a light at night need to be stopped and given a warning by police for their own safety.
