Advocacy, Safety, Road Sharing, other Issues

"Same roads, same rights, same rules", "Share the Road" --great slogans-- but what do they mean? How do we as bicyclists make it happen? What is the right thing to do in a tricky traffic situation? How can we (or should we?) get our local governments to help educate and enforce the laws? This Forum category is where we discuss how bicyclists interface (or not!) with the transportation and political systems.
threads posts
Sharing the Roads-- Which Roads?     
Bike routes, multi-use paths, greenways, bike lanes-- Where do you want more signs or more enforcement? Who do you call? What's going on locally or nationally already regarding advocacy efforts for cycling?

Tricky Traffic, Laws, Safety, Responsibilities     
In every state in the country, bicycles are granted the same rights and responsibilities as any other legal users of the publc roadways. When we ride on local streets, we are required by law to operate our vehicles in a legal manner. But sometimes motor vehicle traffic or road design seems downright dangerous for cycling-- what is the right thing to do? Questions? Discussions?
