The Pic O' the Day comes from Danger in the bike lane by Mike Lindblom, Seattle Times transportation reporter. Heads up people! Looks both ways when crossing or didn't you learn that in kindergarten?
According to one of Lindblom's sources:
"I just ride paranoid," said Sheldrake, who said he's been accident-free for 12 years in Fremont.
He will not pass a car on the right unless he makes eye contact first. That can mean shining his head-mounted, high-intensity light through the car window.
"It gets their attention, long enough to keep you from rolling over their hood," he said.
