The knucklehead on the bicycle should have also been ticketed for riding on the wrong side of the street and causing the collision.

The knuckleheads who teach their kids to ride into traffic are the real danger.

i was once told by a Winnetka cop to do that, FFS.

Yeah, I saw a couple of uniformed cops riding against traffic while on thejob.

I brought up the need to cover bicycles in traffic while in "traffic school" a few years ago and it was nothing but crickets.

Mix modality transportation simply doesn't work out everywhere, as the semi-truck prohibition on LSD likewise underscores.  The good news if any is it wasn't a collision with a 15 ton city bus.  Complicating some of this, in my opinion, is that the signs indicating that bicycles and trucks aren't allowed on LSD are inadequate.
