            • How to Handle Drivers with Road Rage

              Submitted by 303cycling on November 30th, 2017

              Angry drivers are always scary but far more so when you’re on a bike. Here’s how to safely get out of a bad situation.

              BY JOE LINDSEY
              It’s a sad commentary that almost any cyclist can tell a story of a time when a driver was verbally or physically aggressive toward them. In fact, most of us can tell that story from a time when we were in a car, too. A 2016 study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found some 80 percent of drivers expressed “significant anger, aggression, or road rage behind the wheel at least once in the past year.” What’s worse is that according to the study, an estimated eight million US drivers engaged in “extreme” road rage, such as purposely hitting another vehicle. Read more

                    • How Cyclists Can Get Police to Take On-Bike Video Footage Seriously

                      Submitted by 303cycling on October 18th, 2017

                      Over the past several years, more and more riders have been strapping video cameras to their bikes—not to capture rad jumps or beautiful scenery, but for safety reasons. However, the cameras might not be the panacea that many riders believe. On-bike video footage helped authorities catch the alleged driver who hit a cyclist on the Natchez Trace last month, but too often, video evidence from cyclists is ignored by overwhelmed police departments, particularly in cases where there’s no injury or other crime committed. Read more
