Autumn is here, it’s getting cool outside, and I’m suddenly too lazy to devote a lot of effort to some posts I’ve been wanting to get up.  So…  get something warm to drink and check the following links on your own time.

    I was extremely interested in the links on a driver receiving discipline for offenses to a cyclist as a result of video capture. I was disappointed on this particular case only in that it was an unnecessary event. The cyclists definitely played a role in this one.

    Here’s my post on survival skills/techniques concerning road riding: http://myworldfromabicycle.blogspot.com/2010/08/bike-safe-my-survival-tactics-for-road.html

    One of my rules is not to be aggressive with drivers of automobiles.

    I agree. If you can avoid a fight, you definitely should, but in this case, the cyclist’s actions ended in the driver getting a day in court. Had he let it go, the driver may have just continued to do it to others, and that may have eventually ended even worse.
