Re: “Take the lane

The force of any law is enforcement. My experience is that cyclists have all the rights in the world, but when a motorist hits and/or kills a cyclists there are frequently no charges filed. The exception was the death near Mission Valley where alcohol was a factor. Other car-bike fatalities not so. Nor have I ever observed a motorist being cited for the "right hook." or other moving violations. The bottom line is: car hits bike is not a collision insurance issue. The injured person is the cyclist. I ride Raleigh roads frequently. I have had the beer can out the window thrown at me, the right hook form the CENTER lane across my path in the lane I was riding (Edwards Mill and Glen Eden), hand signs, horns blown and all of the other indignities. We will change the perception that non-motorized transportation is our right and motorized transportation is a public "privilege" when there is enforcement of the same. Until then drivers, public officials and law enforcement behaves as if the driver who left-turns in front of two cyclists has the right-of-way.
