From MPR News:
Tensions among bicyclists, motorists and even pedestrians got a full airing on The Daily Circuit on Thursday.
What are some of the main points of contention? Bicyclists tend to complain about cars going too fast, and drivers gripe about bicyclists blowing through stop signs and red lights, said Steve Clark, bicycling and walking program manager for Transit for Livable Communities, on The Daily Circuit. And drivers are unsure what how to maneuver around bikes.
"There's a lot of confusion about passing bicyclists and where bicyclists should be riding," said Clark.
Callers, guests, and online commenters shared tips for boosting civility on the roads. One way to build better relationships between bicyclists and motorists is to increase the number of people who ride bikes, said Mike Magnuson, contributing writer at Bicycling magazine.
If you didn't hear the segment, listen to it on the Daily Circuit.
What did you think about the segment? What did you think about Steve Clark and Mike Magnuson's comments about women cycling and women as an indicator species for safe bike infrastructure? There are a lot of reports that rehash the same old complaints and the same old anecdotal evidence. Was this any better?
