Come to San Luis Obispo County, Gov. Brown: We have paid for bike lanes!
Do you really believe that raising the prices on already fed-up drivers will solve the road rage and battle of road rights? It is impossible to stay three feet away on a two-lane curved road with riders riding side by side instead of tandem — the present law.
It takes your breath away when in town, a biker does not stop at a red light when turning right, when you cannot exit the highway because there is a stream of 30 bikers and what about when a rider gets hit by a car because he was riding at night without a light? We all experience — bikers and drivers — close calls on the road, especially along the coast.
Now that I, as a driver, have another rule of the road to learn for my driver’s test, how about instating a biker’s test at the DMV and a road tax?
Never miss a local story.
I know some people need to ride a bike for school or work, and I support the mode of transportation, but safely. Let’s share the responsibilities!
