We know you’ve seen it: delivery trucks obstructing bike lanes, construction sites that render sidewalks treacherous or impassable, and people who think that crosswalks serve as parking spots. We see it a lot, too, and think it’s time to step up enforcement of these law-flouting drivers and construction companies.

I ride my bike.
When I hear about a person killed while riding their bike, I think of the proverb, “there but for the grace of God go I.” I know a lot of other people have the same reaction.
Even among strangers, there is a deep and difficult-to-verbalize connection to these tragedies. In some way, we’re a two wheeled tribe, more diverse than most characterizations by the media.
