The Irony of Same Roads, Same Rules

The Same Roads, Same Rules campaign was prompted in part by the fatal bicycle accident of Eric Michael Hunt last April 7.

Yet Eric's accident illustrates just why the roads are not the same: he apparently got his wheels caught in the trolley tracks.

The same physical road surface is experienced differently by bicyclists than it is by motorists.

The same track or pothole that is scarcely noticeable to a motorist may be fatal to a bicyclist.
