I've scoffed as one city after another rushed to adopt red-light cameras -- whether to cut down on traffic collisions or to enhance municipal revenue. They bothered me because of reports that drivers would panic-stop when they realized cameras were in action, and that would make for rear-end collisions. Then I watched a video that Keri Caffrey posted today at Commute Orlando:
In her usual worthwhile discussion in today's post, Keri refers to the "culture of me" and how it creates danger and destroys community. Come to think of it, that "culture of me" probably is the one biggest impediment for street cyclists in greater Miami. So whether you are biking because you love to, or driving because you have to, keep the other guy or gal in mind. We're all mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters out on the street. It's everybody's obligation to be safe.
