Re: “The felon cyclist

Cycling is growing as a transport mode. That is good news for anyone that cares to think it through. This growth is thwarted by libertarian attitudes and the resultant behavior related to road safety. The Coast is a libertarian outlet - often in a good way - but in this case fundamentally wrong-headed.

Re: “Ken Reashor: safer to jaywalk than to use a crosswalk

The pedestrian has right of way to cross at every intersection subject to being prudent about the proximity of oncoming vehicles and the shared right to the roadway.

Many people are unaware of the pedestrian's rights and the obligation of motorists to yeild when possible to people wishing to cross at intersections including those with no markings that greatly outnumber the marked ones.

A lack of courtesy is often demonstrated by members of each group: pedestrians - especially at marked crosswalks which Reashor correctly states seem to cause a sense of entitlement - striding out agressively and motorists failing to yeild when they clearly could.

What can be said except that there is a lot to be desired in people's behavior.
