>>975200 It was three people, a 50something man, his 5 year old granddaughter, and some guy in his 30s
The guy in his 30s was hit off camera and survived with severe injuries
The 50 year old and the kid (both in the video) both died
The cager was high and drunk and only got 10 years in prison because they totally came outta nowhere and he is so traumatized by the damage to his hood he doesn't even enjoy his cage repair hobby anymore
>>976227 >>976703 not him but riding on the sidewalk is 100% legal in florida as long as you respect stop signs and other traffic laws. there's barely any pedestrians walking on any sidewalk too. you'd be a fool to ride on the asphalt here. even if it wasn't legal though, I would still ride on the sidewalk. I've heard of too many horror stories here from people biking in the bike lane.
>>977792 >cycling on sidewalk endangers pedestrians Source on that bud? Every statistic I've seen says that (presumably drunk) drivers are a bigger threat to pedestrians on the sidewalk than all cyclists combined.
>>975205 >>976227 >>977730 >>977736 In the country I live, it is 'encouraged' to ride on the road after a certain age, but not prohibited to be on the sidewalk.
I love riding on the road, and I do it whenever I feel safe, meaning in a remote area with little traffic and no speeders. In the city area though, people are crazy and streets are not set out for bikers anyway, so I prefer having a thick layer of parked cars between me and the cagers. It's common sense to be considerate towards pedestrians and give them the main space, after all it is meant for walking.
It all depend on where you are and the overall conditions of traffic and the street itself.
>riding my bike to a new destination >shitty roads the entire time, but no close calls >get to the road that my destination is on and decide to just take the sidewalk because road is super busy >almost get hit 3 times by people pulling in and out of driveways
riding on sidewalks is much more dangerous than roads, anyone that disagrees doesn't have the experience to know better, anyway you look like a pussy regardless
>>979129 That's what we keep trying to tell people. If you're gonna ride on the sidewalk, you have to be extra vigilant for that kind of thing. Not only driveways, but people turning in front of you as you cross a street.
Motorists only use their blinkers half the time around other cars, if they don't see another one to signal to, there's even less of a chance they'll use it.
