    There are so many QUESTIONS regarding cars & bycicles sharing the roads these days. I FOR WOULD ‘DIE AT THE THOUGHT I HAD KILLED OR INJURED ANYONE’ ON A BIKE’. That doesn’t mean I haven’t had a close call.
    PLEASE PUT BIKER/CAR SAFETY ‘IN BLACK & WHITE’, SO. THAT EVERYONE. Knows what the biker’s conduct should be (laws to abide by). As well as what cars’ laws are when approaching bike riders.
    PERSONALLY I DON’T THINK EITHER KNOWS WHAT RIGHTS/LAWS THEY ARE SUPOSED TO DO,
    JUST MAKE IT CLEAR TO ALL Of US SHARING TO ROADS. I think it would save lives. In the very least it puts to rest what the laws are for both bikers & drivers as to what they may ‘think’ is correct but isn’t. A FLASHING LIGHT IN EARLY MORNING & DUSK SHOULD BE A MANDATORY.
