Transcript

  • 1. Sharing the Road
  • 2. The first car crash…
    1896 – A motor vehicle
    collided with a pedalcycle
    rider (NHTSA.gov)
  • 3. From the cyclist’s point of view…
    From BicycleUniverse:
    Riding on the street is several times more dangerous than riding in the street.
    Streets with bike lanes
    38% lower crash rates than major streets without
    56% lower crash rates than minor streets without
    43,000 cyclists injured in traffic crashes in 2007, 52,000 in 2008
  • 4. From the driver’s point of view…
    Crossing yellow line puts driver at risk
    Windy, country roads = blind spots
    Cyclists fail to follow rules of traffic or sport proper equipment
    Packs of cyclists create more danger
  • 5. No room for cyclists
    Maryland’s 3-foot rule won’t work
    Police can ticket cars that come within 3 feet of bicyclists on public roadways
    Many cyclists ride on road without shoulders, making 3 foot rule impossible
    Cyclists should stick to roads with bike lanes, or ride on bike paths
    Cyclists should avoid busy streets
