    According to the Atlantic Cities article, somewhere around 30-40% of all fatal car crashes (“accidents”) involve people who have been drinking and driving. It’s not a good thing that so many people are driving drunk – but drinking is not the only reckless thing people do while driving. According to these numbers, 60-70% of the people who kill people while driving are NON-drunk. Focusing on the dangers of drunk driving is one way we minimize the dangers of just plain driving, and underplay the responsibility we take on when we get into a car and drive. We’ve seen too many cases locally where people who kill others while driving are given very light penalties – because they weren’t “impaired” and therefore whatever happened, it was just an “accident.” On the other hand, people who are caught driving with alcohol (or pot…) in their system can be severely penalized even if they don’t cause any damage to anyone.

    Cardboard helmets might be able to be produced cheap enough that you could sell them for “day use” with a bicycle share program.

    “The Dutch have a cure…” what utter nonsense. Reading crosscut is like spitting into the wind, useless and you get mad that the spit comes back at you and no one else notices.

    Of course the dutch band together to maintain the dikes. It will be useless to maintain the current ones as the seas rise another 4 ft but they’ll try for a few years anyway. As for us in Seattle, well with the SR99 tunnel started but unfunded, same for the 520 bridge, we may well be looking at some rather large uncompleted projects in the near future.

    As for the future, it’s all about mathematics:
    http://www.exploratorium.edu/cycling/humanpower1.html guarantees that bicycling has a place in our transportation future. Even if we switch to Thorium salt fusion reactors for electricity to run our society, bicycles still work so well for short to medium distances that they will be used.

    …if things have gotten this far, these people should probably not have a driver’s license anymore.

    The problem is, in most cases, taking someone’s license away doesn’t actually stop them from driving. They just drive without one. Some states have experimented with confiscating the cars of drunk driving offenders, but that’s unpopular because it ends up punishing their families, too.

    Hey Tom- A while ago you mentioned that you were going to post something about restricting right turns on red in downtown. Are you planning on posting it?

  7. Thanks for putting me on your Bike News Roundup!
