The Daily Record has an article about the bicycle safety thing that TransOptions & the state of New Jersey put on yesterday, and it mostly talks about how people on bikes are putting themselves at risk.
Here’s another article about it from All Headline News. This one has bullet points of safety tips that include:
When approaching an intersection, proceed with caution, looking left, right and left again. Walk the bike across the intersection.
Updated: I actually looked at the pamphlet handed out yesterday, “Safe Bicycle Riding in New Jersey,” and it does say to walk your bike into the street at intersections???
Update #2: Here’s my blog on Morristown Green, where I mention some other stuff that happened, that was actually pretty good.
