Pittsburgh Laurels & Lances - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

The first thing that the bikers need to do is stay off all sidewalks.
Pittsburgh Laurels & Lances - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review On the 'Watch List': The 'Ghost bike' campaign. It's all well and good that the bicycling community is placing bikes at locations of past bike-car accidents around the city. It's an effort to educate the motoring public that cars and bikes share the roads. That said, the biking community would do well to also educate their numbers to obey the rules of the road -- which means not weaving in and out of traffic, not going through red lights and not acting as if they have special privileges. Capice?
Bikes should not be zooming on sidewalks. Walk on the sidewalk. Crawl on the bike on the sidewalk. That's it.

On the road, I have little reason to worry about bike behaviors among the cars.

I agree totally that bicyclists must stay of the sidewalks.

That said, the motorists in Pittsburgh who run down and kill or maim bicyclists, need to be hit with real criminal charges rather than "Vehicular Oopsie."
