People: Let's Make a Deal...

Bike commuters and vehicle drivers - let's compromise.

Posted By on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 at 5:06 PM

...I'll quit riding my bike like an asshole if you quit texting while driving.

I'm a semi-reasonable guy. And, like most people, I want to be a good person. I've recently put a white light on the front of my bike, red flasher on back, reflectors on my backpack and started wearing a helmet while commuting.  

I'm fully aware that blowing stop signs, not signaling my intentions, and blowing more stop signs on my bike isn't helping the cause. I'll stop. And you stop texting when behind the wheel of a large automobile.

Deal? Deal.
