Video: Same Roads, Same Rules, Same Rights

A recent fatality in Virginia Beach has sparked much discussion about safety on our roads, cyclists’ rights on our roads, and the responsibility of drivers for cyclists’ safety.  This video, from the League of Illinois Bicyclists, gives a good overview for both drivers and cyclists:

  • A very helpful video (Same Road, Same Rules, Same Rights)with one huge flaw. At about the 3:35 mark the cyclist in the example will blatantly run through a stop sign without even slowing down. Cyclists bear as much responsibility to obey all traffic control signs as do motorists. Showing such disregard in your video is irresponsible in my view.
