Myths about our fair town

By
From page A10 | October 10, 2013 |

Especially this time of year, there are many students and others who believe a few myths about our fair town.

* Everyone loves bicyclists! (Actually, many of us do love bicycling, but can’t believe a fast rider would split between pedestrians on a shared path.)

* You never forget how to ride a bike! (Ah, fond memories of riding neighborhood sidewalks, but wait, that was before bike lanes and learning about yielding, stopping and more from the Vehicle Code.)

* Pedestrians always have the right-of-way in California! (We are very ped-friendly here and we’ll try to stop on a dime, but drivers and bikers don’t want that dime to be in your pocket, even if you’re jaywalking or crossing against the light.)

* I can see you, so vice-versa! (Whoa, this isn’t a myth. If your car, bike, or clothes are dark-colored and you don’t have a light, you’re pretty hard to see at night without night-vision goggles.)

* Speeding saves so much time! (Use those good brains and do the math. It’s a 25 mph limit on Eighth Street. At 30 mph from Anderson Road to B Street, you save 17 seconds, probably less time than it takes to stand up and get your keys.)

Learn, teach and live thoughtfully!
