    There was a big to-do last year about a girl who'd taken a selfie at Auschwitz which I would think is a more extreme example of that, and the argument that won me over is that basically, that's part of how a lot of people (especially young people) document and process their experiences. So if you're visiting a place like that, serious, heavy history, etc, and taking a picture of yourself there helps you remember it, process it, whatever, then there shouldn't be a problem with that. If they were being idiots about it, obviously that's different.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    The term “protected bike lane” is propaganda. Most car-bicycle crashes occur due to crossing and turning movements at intersections. Hiding bicyclists behind parked vehicles until shortly before each intersection is no solution to this problem. -- cite


    I definitely agree with this paragraph. I'm curious does anyone else feel the same way?I ONLY WEAR CAMPY CONDOMS WITH WHITE WRAPS - joeyfresh
  16.  
    there is such a thing as a protected bikelane that doesn't hide bicyclists (curb or planters) but in general, yes. There are also designs that force right turning cars to cross the bikelane at an actual 90 degree angle, which increases visibility.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    I am conflicted. Ideally we would have both space on the road for competent riders who need to get places efficiently in addition to separated cycle tracks for regular people who want to wander around and enjoy their days. Riding in Paris and Amsterdam was SO CHILL, I would love that option on most streets here.

    I sort of agree with ^^ that statement. You do have to be extra careful at intersections, but it's fucking wonderful to get away from drivers for a while, so you probably have to be less aware of things overall. This is not true for those horrible street-level lanes on the wrong side of car parking, where there are right turn possibilities and you're completely blocked from view like Ames st. Sidewalk level lanes like Vassar are better, once peds learn to respect it."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Isn't John Allen the vehicular cycling zealot?

    I believe the paragraph you're agreeing with is only true if you aren't counting doorings as "crashes". Since doorings are a major issue for the existing Comm Ave bike lane, the 6.5 foot wide "protected" lane is a definite improvement. If bicyclists are going to be expected to make their crossing/turning movements in what will continue to be a protected lane at the crosswalks with the same signal as pedestrians, then this will help to mitigate those, at least to the same extent to which it's mitigated for pedestrians.

    The rest of the article is, IMHO, bullshit. 6.5 feet is plenty of room to pass. It's wider than a freaking *car*. I'm sitting on my full-size sofa right now and that's less than 6.5 feet wide. Maybe that's not enough room to pass a rickshaw, but I don't think that John Allen's argument is that you won't be able to pass rickshaws.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    This got me thinking about what would actually make my commute safer, and the answer is don't-go-in-the-out-way-style parking lot pavement spikes that enforce no-right-on-red intersections. Possibly killing someone doesn't faze people, so we gotta step it up to damaging inanimate objects.

    which is to say, I almost got hit in that to-the-right-of-the-turn-lane NB bike lane in the BU bridge rotary last week.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    I've been skimming through John Forrester's Effective Cycling, who is an OG vehicular cyclist, and o man some of this guy's opinions are pretty wrong. I mean, I understand it and usually have to live it since there's usually no other option, but just look at crash rates in European cities that actually have good, consistent infrastructure. It'd be so nice to not live in constant fear of being buzzed or hit from behind by a negligent driver, and only have to pay regular attention at crossings."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Damn straight. Bring out the damage

    Sidewalk level lanes like Vassar are better, once peds learn to respect itNandy

    I gotta say, Vassar scares the hell out of me. I ride slower than normal because peds have no sense and can run across the lane at any time without looking at all. My theory is: "Peds and/or cyclists are at the most risk when the speed between them (or between them and cars) is greatest". That is a cyclist @ 15mph within touching distance of a ped walking is at great harm. Just like a cyclist starting out from a red light (2mph) is at greatest harm when cars are flying by them at 35mph. Once I'm going at 18mph with cars going 25mph I can use any lane I'd like and pass in between cars with relative ease and feel the safest.I ONLY WEAR CAMPY CONDOMS WITH WHITE WRAPS - joeyfresh
