New Calif. Law Adds 3-Foot Protection For Cyclists But Will It Make San Diego Roads Safe Enough?

We are dealing with simple bigotry here. This time it's not based on cultural or religious differences or even skin color or facial shape. In this instance it is due to transportation choice and the tendency and will to use a chosen transportation tool as a weapon for intimidation. It is this kind of simian chest beating that confirms our genetic similarity to the great apes. Hateful bigoted anonymous posts amount to sublimated poo-flinging.

New Calif. Law Adds 3-Foot Protection For Cyclists But Will It Make San Diego Roads Safe Enough?

"Passion for sport" has absolutely nothing to do with getting to and from work. When you assert that "cars will always rule the road" you are suggesting that drivers are able to flout the law with impunity. This is becoming less and less the case as our ship of a legal system slowly rights its course to aggressively defend vulnerable road users. More and more drivers who carelessly or aggressively injure others on the roads are facing serious legal and civil penalties that may restrict their driving privileges and deplete their finances. If I were you, and I assume by your posts that you tend to act out your aggressive fantasies while behind the wheel of your steel cage, I would drive cautiously around people who might be injured by your entitled carelessness. Finally, ability to write properly in English goes a long way toward achieving credibility. The first word of your last post should be the contraction "you're" (you + are), not the possessive pronoun "your."

Talk about a privileged class! It is the province of entitled drivers to behave as if they own the whole street. What are militant drivers but entitled elitists? My advice is to get over your bigoted prejudices and show a little compassion for vulnerable road users. Drive as if your children were cycling or walking nearby. Show some compassion instead of reflecting the violence inherent in today's brutal society. Drivers and cyclists - I challenge you to be kind, connected, and unafraid. Those who choose to reject the dominant transportation paradigm in favor of adopting a more sustainable and healthy model should be praised and encouraged for their insightful and current contributions to the betterment of our built environment. The vanguard is first ignored, then laughed at, then viciously attacked. After that stage, they win!

San Diego Sued Over 'Foul Odor' of Sea Lion And Bird Poop at La Jolla Cove

It would be nice if KPBS and the U-T showed a little more respect for their constituents and refrained from using baby talk in their news articles. I'm sure they can find more mature language than resorting to onomatopoetic monosyllables to describe the droppings of wild animals.

Bike Program Shows City Employees Carrying On Despite Mayoral Troubles, Councilmembers Say

Probably for a lot less than you'd be charged for not returning one.

'Bike To Work Day' Highlights San Diego's Infrastructure Needs

You forget to mention that Elvis came back to Earth on a UFO and has a great new diet! "Dizzy" is an appropriate appellation!

Filner Issues Emergency Order To Close La Jolla Children's Pool

This was a staged performance designed for the SealCam in an effort to get the beach closed and solicit more money from gullible donors who value emotion and sentimentality over science. The Wans of Malibu and their pseudo-scientific and eponymous "conservancy" are only in this for the profits. Altruism is the farthest thing from their minds.

State law prohibits closing public beach access. Even wealthy beachfront property owners in Malibu have to live with this reality. Filner is pandering to the lowest common intellectual denominator by his illegal action.

Cyclist Deaths Bring Bike Safety Resolution Before City Council

Claire,
Ironically, the name of the Boulevard is spelled "Clairemont," after developer Claire Burgener. "Claremont" is the college town northeast of LA.

Motorist Faces Charges For Hitting, Killing Cyclist

If you want to kill someone in this country and get away with it, make sure your weapon of choice is an automobile and your intended victim is riding a bicycle. If Zegler had killed someone by reckless discharge of a firearm, you can be sure he'd be facing jail time.

City Says Bike Lane May Have Made Intersection More Dangerous

Slow down the traffic as far back as Fairmount Avenue. What a waste of time, money, and material! This whole area should be treated as a school zone with one lane in either direction for motor traffic. This is not a freeway, but traffic engineers seem to regard it and Fairmount as extensions of I-8. These are surface streets. High speeds and uncontrolled merges have no place here.
