Be careful on your bikes, trikes, and unicycles!
NPR has a story about a doctor who was convicted for using his car as a deadly weapon against two cyclists. It included this line: "According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic crashes killed 716 cyclists last year and injured 52,000 people riding bikes, trikes and unicycles."
Do people really ride trikes and unicycles on the road? And aren't they just asking for trouble?
Regarding road rage toward bicyclists, as a guy who has occasionally ridden his bike to work (and should do so more often), I have some sympathy for the peddlers. On the other hand, there's a great bike trail along the road I take to work, yet plenty of cyclists still decide to ride in the road and slow down traffic. They, too, are asking for trouble.
