Jesus, is nowhere safe from cars? On Tuesday, a woman drove her Cadillac right into a California bike store at 30 to 40 miles per hour. Nobody was seriously injured, but as the video shows, it was a close shave. Perhaps literally. The two people standing my the counter may actually have had the hair scraped off their legs.
Here's another point in favor of bikes: Think about what a video of a bike running into a car dealership would look like.
