Every time you get in a car, you are handling a lethal weapon.  If you do not do so with the utmost care, someone could die

Pedestrians and cyclists don’t have a “safety cage” around them, like all modern cars do.  Pedestrians are separated by a kerb.  Cyclists are required by law to share the road with people like the ones mentioned in the article above.  Even at a low speed, cars can and have killed cyclists.  Wearing helmets, and safety gear, even in a bike lane.  To a motorist, an accident is an inconvenience, 99.9% of the time, they have to repair their car, at worst.  To cyclists, any collision with a car has a very good chance of death.


Think about that next time you see a cyclist…
