I looking for news articles for a project at work, and I came across an article in the Wall Street Journal I wanted to share. It's titled: Cycling's New Rules of the Road. It talks about the cycling boom right now, but focuses mainly on NYC. I wanted to point it out because I thought it was a good read as I was going through it as I read about how it can be choas at times with drivers, pedestrians and cyclist all having the share the road. Then halfway down the article it swiches gear (pun not originally intended, but sticking with it) about a new ad campaign that NYC is launching. It's titled "Don't be a jerk" and is aimed at cyclists. I like that there's a campaign about sharing the road that has this title, but I don't understand why it can't be aimed at drivers and pedestrians at the same time, teaching everyone to share. Anyway, my intention isn't to post this to create a rant. I thought a good part of it was an interesting read for a few reasons. 1. The guy who is the main source for the article in regards to urban planning and cyclists being a part of that plan is working on a study about cycling in cities that Chicago is partially funding. 2. The article states that in Chicago bus drivers and cab drivers are required to take a course on safe driving with cyclists. The bus driver part I knew, but cab drivers are required too? Really? 3. I think the article had good information to add extra knowledge and perspective as a bike advocate.
I just realized how long it's been since I've posted anything here. Jeez.
I think it's become common, accepted practice to attribute quotes to H3N3. I mean, can you prove he never said that?
