Great letter. Mr.Levin Manages to get his point across without sounding whiny or antagonistic. My favorite line from the letter is “When citizens, legislators and police departments agree that a behavior needs to change, they do something about it.”
I am really glad I watched the video in Colin’s link because the “photo” that starts the video was so odd.
It looks very much like they used a photo of a cyclist in a right turn only lane very near the intersection signalling a left turn. There appears to be at least one and perhaps two lanes of cars between him and that left turn.
Turns out it was a cop and an unmarked car demonstrating what 3 feet looks like. Described as the length of an arm, and a foot.
Interesting photo image tho, for a story on bike safety!
