  •  I knew someone that was hit from behind (4+ / 0-)

    he was killed.  The driver that hit him was legally blind.  I don't know what you can do about that, the driver was going to kill someone eventually.  There does seem to be a problem with people texting while driving.  I don't know if that really endangers cyclists more than other drivers though.  "I didn't see him" seems to get most people out of any legal issues.

    You are right about bike lanes and paths to a great extent.  But we have some separate lanes that avoid most road crossings and I really like those when I'm tired or riding with the kids.  In general, I ride like everyone is actively trying to kill me, and that has helped me avoid a lot of accidents.
