This seems to be the new trend in a lot of stores. Why take your kids to the playground when you canRead More let them play in the store. You go to Ikea and the kids are jumping on the beds, running around the racks. Go grocery shopping and you have little children pushing little cars half filled with food items, racing down the aisle and around the corner, ramming the cart into the back of your legs and then have mom laugh. The parents think it's a hoot. Parents letting their children eat crackers and then leave the empty box on the shelf. Go to Home Depot and the children are climbing to the top of the much bags (it had to be 15 feet off the ground). Guess who's going to get sued if the little kiddies gets hurt? None of the stores want to say anything because they might lose a customer. Or worse someone will call the local news and give a one side rendition of what happened. That being said I really don't know what happened in this casr but it feels good to vent. Thanks for listening.

Sure, if you're the bicyclist you can - and should - do that, I agree. My point was that thisRead More article is about which towns are the safest for bicyclists and so my point was that I'm not sure that just because some towns have task forces, outreach, and engagement actually makes them truly any safer in reality without widening some roads, which are typically pretty narrow in CT, too narrow for cars and bikes to correctly share them.
Lesley July 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm

Yes, it should follow that "distracted cycling" is against the law - easy enough to findRead More out. Enforcement of laws is certainly important safety of all users of the road, and is recognized as such, but there are four others that are necessary for a Town to become Bike-Friendly, which is the point of the survey initiative. Linda was on to one of the others - Education. For the rest of the "E"s, go to www.bikeleague.org/content/5-es and follow what is happening nation-wide to make cycling a safe and acceptable activity everywhere. As for this initial survey, the results are clearly not very accurate, and hopefully many more people will care to participate next time.

I didn't see any stats about how many bike accidents there were? In Fairfield, we see tons ofRead More bicycles. Most do not follow the rules of the road...they go the wrong way, they fail to signal, they fail to yield the right of way, at stop signs, and most are adults who certainly should know better. Yesterday I saw a man on a scooter, without a helmet, on So. Benson Rd...ON THE PHONE! I really believe that most of the roads, in Fairfield are unsafe for bicycling. It's not the fault of the roads, but traffic is very heavy in this town, and people do not use caution and common sense. I really believe a bike in this town, is extremely dangerous.
