The Chainlink

Read a great article today, almost a history of cars on the road. How they were inconvenient and then not so much. I'm not anti-car, but I love a good driver, just the same as my fellow bicyclist. 

Crazy to think that according to the statistics provided in this article, cars(and drivers) will kill slightly less than the population of my hometown in Michigan this year.

Surprisingly, I find taxi drivers fairly courteous when I bike. I am a bit intimidated by the police and fire trucks that speed by. Granted there is a emergency and I've been told the firehouse on Wilson is one of the busiest in the city. I find the big white work truck vans to drive extremely dangerously. I guess I have to expect that is "life in the big city" though.
