Use Your Common Sense

Today is Use Your Common Sense Day. It’s sad that we have to designate such a day, as common sense should be used at least 70% of the time. The other 30% can be used for sleeping. It is true, however, that some drivers don’t use common sense when approaching cyclists. It should be quite clear, for instance, that targeting a cyclist with a bottle full of paint while driving 70 mph could actually kill the cyclist. Yet people do it. To help diminish such acts, a non-profit group in Austin, TX has formed. It’s called Please Be Kind To Cyclists and was founded by a cyclist who was severely injured by a vehicle. Check it out.
