It is ridiculous that you still print any letters on the topic of bicycles vs. motor vehicles. By now we all know the differences between these, and we understand the various nuances of their coexistence on public roads. There is nothing to be gained from printing the same complaints over and over. There are risks associated with every form of transportation, be it airplane, train, automobile, bicycle or even walking. It is not the fault of any of these that dangers exist, and it is not up to motorists, bicyclists, the City Council, the Department of Transportation or Barak Obama to ensure us that we may go about our merry way without any personal involvement in self-preservation.
Quit acting like a bunch of crybabies and accept the fact that perfect safety cannot be guaranteed and that it is not someone else's responsibility to relieve us of the burden of common sense. You have a brain. Use it.
