I'm curious WHY no one read and/or commented on my PSA post? Maybe it looked longer than my usual updates but there is good information to be found there people. Traumatic Brain Injuries are serious and we should all as MilSpouses know more about them and the warning signs. Please take a minute and read it. Towards the end there is a link for a giveaway courtesy of Jim Beam.
Check it out.
Have you ever wondered WHY bicyclists are entitled to the road, just the same as motorists are?
I think about this a lot.
Usually when they should... have the room to move closer to the curb but don't move over.
Usually at this point I remember my parents telling me not to play in the street because people don't pay attention and they WILL hit you. The car is BIGGER than you... so stay out of the road.
I don't know something about being on a tiny-lil' bike with 100's of multiple ton cars zooming by- or at least attempting to, doesn't sound like a good time to me.
I just wonder WHY they don't move out of the way (when available) and then get mad that drivers of cars passing by curse and scream at them while they dodge on-coming traffic in order to pass them.
I was talking with my Dad about this- he's a genius, and he made a great point. Motorists pay taxes that go toward the upkeep of their local roadways... the bikers don't. WHY are they just as entitled to the road as motorists??!
But on the other hand where are the bikers supposed to ride if the "sidewalk" is for "walking"??
Such a confusing issue.
Although it's pretty simple to me- Cars=bigger than bikes/people... get the hell out of their way.
Easy for me though... I'm not a biker.
