Facing drivers

Los OsosSeptember 11, 2013 

Let me try to understand this: I am going to ride my bike in a lane, which sometimes has ample space, along a highway with a speed limit of 65 miles an hour. I am not able to see the traffic approaching me from behind to determine whether the drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, are late for work, stressed from home life or whatever.

Now, if I were on a bike facing traffic and seeing the expression on the driver’s face I should think my chances of survival are far better. If in doubt of my theory, ask the families of Alan Stephens and Bradley Cummins.
