New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, says cyclists and pedestrians are “more important” than motorists. Not quite. Equality – among ALL road-users – is the solution to most of our problems on the road. It’s absurd that people on foot should defer to drivers, especially in urban settings. If anything it should be the other way round. If we took it in turns, instead of living (and dying) by priority, most of our road safety and congestion problems would vanish in a puff of exhaust smoke.” Thanks to Alex Smith for sending the link.
