Bike Traps Coming to a Road [Not So] Near You

KSL NewsRadio 1160: "Five Utah police agencies will be participating in a state-sponsored crackdown on motorists who aren't sharing the roads with bicycles.

Plainclothes officers will ride bicycles to catch motorists who aren't sharing the road."

What a great idea! What are the chances of it happening in Darlington, do we think?

Spot On! Pete R. has just come back from the States, amazed at the careful car driving that goes on in towns over there (even though there is little cycle path development and everyone drives everywhere). 25mph is the standard town speed limit, so the psychology is very much geared to giving cyclists a fair share of the road.
