ZAZ: Kind of like my car after driving across the Great Plains, except the bodies weren't human. Or bicyclists.adding that an incident of this kind was "relatively rare".Just how common is relatively rare?

doglover: Cyclists have the same self preservation instincts as skunks, that is to say none whatsoever.
huntercr: doglover:Cyclists have the same self preservation instincts as skunks, that is to say none whatsoever.Came here to say this. There's a "major" bike route through my morning commute and I can't believe the idiotic behavior. They have a dedicated lane for half of it even, and people STILL pull out in front of you without looking or signalling. There does seem to be a crowd mentality at work. 1-2 cyclists are hardly ever idiots. 8-10 seem to be the tipping point into idiotic road behavior./Is it just me or do Europeans also seem to think high speed trains are somehow less dangerous because they're common place?//Though the article says "level crossing"... what the what? 173mph average and you just let people cross it???
