New Rules of the Road That Work for Cars *and* Cyclists

Sharing the road means much more than just checking your blind spot. Angry drivers often argue that if cyclists want to ride on the road, then they should obey all the rules of the road. The fact is, not all vehicles are created equal. Those rules were designed for heavy, powerful metal machines full of fire and people—not their more vulnerable, human-powered counterparts. That's why a few places have legalized my tactic of rolling through the red, also called the Idaho stop—because it actually makes cycling safer. That's why we should start thinking differently about the road and how we police it, rather than allowing cyclist-vs-driver animosity rise unchecked.
