I was reading the comments after the article of the girl whose parents were killed while riding a tandem bike and the driver of the truck was not criminally charged. Someone made the comment that bikes do not belong on the road. There is no way anyone can say it is safe for a 200 lbs biker going 15mph to ride on the same road as a 2 ton vehicle doing 45+ mph. Someone else then stated that we argue that we should be treated as vehicles and allowed to share the road. Many people talked back and forth about Multi Use Paths MUP. They say the MUP should be the only place to ride a bike. Then people say the MUP is unsafe for the walker or jogger with a bicycle going 15 mph or faster so bikes should be treated as cars and have to ride on the road. The next one really got me thinking. One person said that bikers should not be allowed on roads for safety reasons and bikers should not accept that they are treated as vehicles and relegated to riding on the highways and streets. The said that we should not be arguing to be treated as vehicles we should be arguing that we are bicycles and thereby forcing the communities to build an infrastructure for bicycle use to make it safer for us. They should be building bike lanes, bike trails to allow bicycle riders to ride to and from any area safely away from vehicles. What do you think, should we leave it as it is and get laws passed to give us safe passing distances? Should we fight for more education at all levels including making it a bigger part of the driver's education, and driver's license exams, that cyclists are considered vehicles and should be given the berth that you would give any other vehicle? We as cyclist do these things already but what should be done to reduce the danger? We will lose every time against a vehicle.
