Unfortunate particularly that it happened near the end of the sharrows on King. Cyclists can and should take advantage of them by signaling and moving to the centre of the lane giving riders plenty of room on either side. Hope for a speedy recovery for the injured party.

Give cars parked on King Street a wide berth = take the lane. It's such a good slogan, someone should name a blog after it. =)


It's actually the driver's responsibility to NOT open their door into traffic... even Bill is getting in on the victim blaming. Wowsers.

That's not to say that one shouldn't be afraid of cars and people with steering wheels in their hands, but still. I hope that person at least got the petty fine that comes with a door prize.
