    Re: ABC7 Investigates the City’s Five Most Dangerous Intersections for Bicycling

    What a bunch of crap. Talk about the culture of fear, and talk about biased coverage. If I didn’t know better, I would walk away from the report thinking, “Man, those bicyclists are nothing but trouble. We gotta stop them before they destroy our city.” Absolutely no mention of how many people are killed and maimed by cars to keep it in perspective, and all the positive benefits of cycling. And oh no, that guy without the helmet … how dangerous! No mention that most head injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents, yet we don’t call motorists dangerous when they don’t wear helmets.

    What a bunch of crap. This sort of biased reporting must change if we are going to get more people on their bikes and out of their cars.

    Again, notice that they took away the cyclist’s bike in the Mission/EMB crash. How often do you hear about the driver of a car hitting someone and then being able to drive away from the scene?

    “Just be careful”. What a smug….
