I am saying that if he chooses to ride his bike there then any consequences of his actions are his alone (barring a DWI or something like that). In the same way I don't feel sorry for any daredevil that dies attempting to pull of some dangerous stunt, I wouldn't feel sorry for this bike rider if someone driving on that road accidentally hit him. Just because you have the legal right to do something does not make it smart.

    I was referring to state laws, but you're obviously correct about Austin city ordinances.

    Letter to the editor in Sunday's AAS:

    Slack for cyclists
    "Cyclists run red lights": Bike lanes often disappear at intersections, and if I can I will get across the intersection to avoid being in your way when the light turns green. "Cyclists run stop signs": Why don't you trade places with a cyclist on a hot summer day? It takes way more of my energy to stop and start my bike than it does for you to twitch your foot. Few cyclists will run a stop sign unless they would have already had the right of way. "Cyclists don't have to earn a license." Bring it on. While we're at it, let's make all pedestrians display a license to walk so I can report every jaywalker who inconveniences me. Consider that cyclists are using one of the cheapest, most ethical, most energy-efficient means of transportation in existence. Cut them some slack.

    Looks like her educators cut her a lot of slack.

    I can remember one instance where I was at the light by the Fiji house waiting and nobody was behind me. Two $#@!got bicyclists come rolling up behind me and get right in front of me. I gunned it as I went around and laughed as one of the $#@!ers fell sideways because I scared the $#@! out of him. Didn't feel bad at all either. In fact, it felt great. Also, these are the same $#@!s that will run your ass over on campus flying down Speedway. So, $#@! them. I could give a $#@!.

    Shoulder or no shoulder they have the right to use the road.

    There are some bad cyclists, as there are bad drivers. Just chill out, give them room and you will get to your destination in your crazy gas machine.

    There's one simple rule that bicycles can follow that will stop at least half of bike-car collisions: Do not pass stopped cars at intersections.

    Whoever created this has clearly never seen how cyclists ride around town. For example, look at the bike lanes- the cyclists are actually using them vs. doing 5mph in the main lanes of S. Lamar when there's an actual $#@!ing bike lane there for them.

    This is stupid. If I'm in a clear bike lane I'm gonna keep going up to the intersection. And I won't demand that cars stop for bikes, either - just pass safely.

    I don't know how the bike lanes work in Austin, but in Indy, they're awful. Downtown Indy is a bunch of one-ways, not set up for bikes. So the genius government decided to take a road with four lanes and shrink the lanes and include a bike lane. But the bike lanes stay on the right side of the direction you're going, NO MATTER WHAT. So if you are driving in the right hand car lane, the bike lane is right to the right, but if you need to get over into a right hand turn lane, the bike lane keeps going straight, and your car has to cross the bike lane to get into the turn lane. So dumb.

    Why not just use the money to put bike lanes onto an enlarged/brand new sidewalk? Why does a bike HAVE to be on the road (I get that that is what the law says, but WHY is it the law says that)? Just seems safer for everyone to keep them up off the roads whenever possible.

    Central Austin (downtown-ish surrounding areas) has some nice bike lanes- pretty wide and not just "gutters". I use them all the time and feel safe, and they make it easy to stay out of the way of cars.

    When I lived in Houston the bike lanes there were terrible- all they did was re-stripe the lanes and create a narrow bike lane in the $#@!ing gutters- which are full of debris, cracks, etc. I would never use those.

    Shoulder or no shoulder they have the right to use the road.

    There are some bad cyclists, as there are bad drivers. Just chill out, give them room and you will get to your destination in your crazy gas machine.
    Yeah, you also have the right to pass out KKK literature in the Fifth Ward. Doesn't make it a good idea.

    The problem isn't passing the cars. The problem is when you get to the front that first car can't see you and is going to hit you as he makes a right turn. This is the most common collision.

    I don't ride my bike much anymore, but I always stop at the sign on a bike lane at an intersection like this and assume he/she is turning right. I always look over my shoulder though when driving near campus because yes this does happen.

    Yeah, this does happen far too often. Usually when a car misjudges the speed of the bike, or doesn't give a $#@! and decides to turn and cut off the biker, or speeds up to try to get ahead of the biker and turn when he doesn't have enough time/space. If a biker is coming up on a line of cars he should be on the lookout for right turns, even if the driver doesn't use his turn signals, which happens A LOT; if the biker isn't aware, he's an idiot and will win the Darwin award soon enough. So in 3 of the 4 possible scenarios, it's at least partially the driver's fault. Just a bit of common sense on both sides, and there's no problem.

    Common misconception, usually the car has the right of way. Bike lanes only make this particular problem worse, IMO.

    And if there isn't a bike lane it is illegal to pass at an intersection like this.

    Best rule of thumb...if you wouldn't do it in a car, don't do it on a bike.

    When I lived in Austin, I used to ride with three other guys. We rode once a week almost every week, 20 -60 miles at a time, for about 5 years. All of us also bike commuted to school/work the majority of the time. In that time, three of us were hit by cars:

    Biker A lost his spleen-- 100% drivers fault. He tried to flee the scene but was stopped by the bike being mangled up under his wheels and his car wouldn't drive. He was issued a single traffic ticket. Biker was obeying every bike law there is. Got his medical bills and bike paid for but had to file a $#@!ing law suit to get it done.

    Biker B had his ear ripped off (and subsequently reattached). In addition, the skin on the side of his head and face is permanetly tattooed by the pavement. He honestly doesn't remember the accident since he was unconscious for a while after the accident. This one occurred on his way to work. Doc said helmet probably saved his life. Driver who hit him fled the scene, never been caught because APD has done nothing to try and find the driver, despite the fact that eyewitnesses say it was taxi (shouldn't be hard to track down a taxi).

    Biker C was hit by a border-line senile grandma who blew a stop sign. No serious injuries, but bike was totaled. She or her insurance paid for the bike. Was not even issued a citation by APD, who showed up on the scene.

    Biker D never been hit by a car (yet).

    Four bikers, three major accidents, two serious injuries requiring major surgery, three bikes totaled. one ticket issued.

    From my point of view, I really don't have any sympathy for those of you who complain about bikers forcing you to slow down or passing you in the bike lane.

    If there was only one ticket issued the other two accidents were probably the bikers' fault.

    No, they weren't. Grandma ran a stop sign. Taxi fled the scene and was never caught. Eyewitnesses say the taxi was at fault.

    Sorry, my skimming comprehension is low. Grandma shoulda been ticketed. Taxi driver needs jail time.

    No prob. I generally dislike using personal anecdotes to prove a point, but in this case, what the hell.

    There are no bike lanes in the posted digram.

    Unicyclists are only about half as bad as most other cyclists.

    Ok, I'll talk to y'all later.

    I had the displeasure of "sharing" the road with these $#@!s yesterday. They were on a road where the posted speed limit is 40 I think, but not one car was going below 45.

    Looks like a pretty easy pass if you weren't $#@!ing around on your phone mining for internet points. Double line be damned.

    I could have run them over to score even more points, but I was running a little late for a tee time.
