Default Look on bright side when you see bikes on road



It is easy to complain about bike riders not following all traffic
rules. However, there are just as many car drivers who break
traffic
laws. For example, how many car drivers obey the speed limit?

Consider instead these advantages of bikes on the road:

Almost every bike on the road represents a car not driven and
therefo

* A reduction in air pollution.
* A reduction in traffic congestion and traffic noise.
* Greater availability of parking spaces.
* A reduction of wear on the roads.
* A reduction in the demand for gasoline.

So instead of looking at bike riders and car drivers as
antagonists,
think of the benefits instead next time you encounter a bicycle in
traffic.
