Bad Bicyclists

New, 74 comments

So, with bike commuting up 35 percent a new study from Hunter College says that bicyclists kind of suck when it comes to obeying the rules. For instance, a lot of them "still don’t wear helmets and they regularly ignore traffic laws." The author of the study said he found the results "a little disturbing." For instance, only one-quarter of bike messengers and kids required to wear helmets do and fewer than half of bicyclists stop for red lights and 12 percent ride on the sidewalk. [Metro]
