comment Is pollution a problem in urban cycling?
@SuperElectric They cite another study which states the respitory average of cyclists is 2.3 times higher than car drivers. For some of the harmful chemicals, the intake of the car drivers is higher even taking that into account (e.g.) Benzene, but for other pollutants, the higher respitory rate of the cyclists makes up for the lower pollutants. For example, (in their study), inside the car, there are only 1.7 times more dust / particulates than on the bike, and so the cyclist would be breathing more dust, on average, if the respitory rate is as claimed. But that also varies widely per day.

comment Can cars legally drive in the bike lane down the street?
When I first moved to a new city, I got pulled over for driving in a bike lane one time. It had the same width as a regular lane, and so many people were doing it that I didn't even realize that it was a bike lane. Now that I know better, I wish the officer was out there pulling people over more often.
