EViLTeW: Pathetic of them not to show where she turned onto the bike path from. I chased it down on google maps and it doesn't appear to be signed as bikes only, but it doesn't look like the kind of road you should be turning down, either. It looks like a service road or bike path.
Bugerz: Just returns for some of the crap bikers pull off in traffic. Although, still doesn't beat the random woman that just walked into the street 20 feet in front of me this morning pushing a cart full of little debbie snacks./she doesn't have a cart now//i need a new bumper
Pocket Ninja: Subby, you had the beginnings of a good, multi-faceted troll here, but I'm afraid that, frankly, you blew it. Yes, you got the "biggest douchebags" reference in there for the bike riders, and that's going to cause a nice but somewhat predictable flare up between oblivious bike riders who think they own the road and waddling blubber cushions who couldn't ride half a mile if their life depended on it and are therefore jealous that they'll never be able to wear spandex without a very real risk of causing permanent blindness. But "worst female driver in the world"? Come on, is that supposed to enrage women or something? Being the "worst female driver" is only saying something about that one driver. It's not saying anything about female drivers in general. In fact, if you just take the words at their literal sense, it's actually not an insult at all. It takes the "worst female driver in the world" to do something like this? I guess all the rest of them must be pretty good drivers then, huh? At least good enough to not have this happen, anyway.Now, let's look at this another way. What if she's not "the worst female driver in the world" but is rather a "typical female driver?" A fair representative, in other words, of all women drivers. Now that would be saying something. And what if we just tweaked the overall tone of the headline, made it a question. People like headlines that are questions...it pulls them in, makes them want to click the link to see if the answer they've already shaped in their head fits the actual scenario. So, instead of "worst female driver in the world vs. the biggest douchebags in the world," maybe you'd have something like this:What happens when a typical female driver meets the biggest douchebags on the road?"or, for something even punchier and more direct:Woman driver vs. douchebags. Who loses?Lots of other possibilities, too. The main thing to remember is to not go overboard with the hyperbole. Lots of times, things are funnier when ...
justoneznot: How about you just try submitting witty headlines yourself, that way you don't have to waste all that time critiquing others
Hollie Maea: This was the last decision she faced before she got stuck. Apparently "forward" seemed the right thing to do.
Outshined_One: ChiWhiteSox_56: jaytkay: We have a new experimental bike lane here in Chicago.Two-way bike traffic on a one-way street.With separate red & green traffic lights for bikes.I think it's going to confuse the fark out of everybody - drivers, cyclists and pedestrians./ Cyclist[lh3.googleusercontent.com image 480x638]Well I'll be dipped. That's news to me!They're doing it on Dearborn and on Franklin in the Loop for now. Supposedly these lanes are going to expand into River North and the West Loop eventually.Heaven help us when they start popping up on streets like Milwaukee, Ogden, and Elston. I already want to open my door on 90% of the cyclists who use Milwaukee.

Grave_Girl: max_pooper: doglover: lordargent: The driver was not cited.The fark?!No laws were broken.I'm pretty sure operating a motor vehicle on a designated bike path is illegal in most states.Plus I'm fairly certain they could have nailed her for distracted driving.
