Vehicularist?


Are you a vehicularist or a facilitator? An interesting article on bicycles and traffic rules here in Slate magazine online.

I’m glad that cycles are excluded from „one way“ rules in Japan. On the other hand, I did hear somewhere that police are stopping cyclists and warning them here now for riding at night without a forward light.

[David L. supplement:] I just wanted to add this cross reference — a post from a master finance blogger who touches upon related topics — which model of car drivers are the worst? I believe Nihoncassandra has recently relocated from the East Coast of the U.S. to France, so his ranking presumably applies to BMW drivers in France, not in New Jersey.

  1. Thanks for posting the article. I like it a lot, and for me it really expresses the dilemma between two alternatives, neither of which is perfect. I don't want to be banned to bike paths with slow and dangerous cyclists and many intersections, but I also want to have bike paths when the road is so dangerous I'd rather avoid it…
