Bicycling in the Wrong Direction (Salmoning) is not Safe Cycling

Salmon swim upstream and are symbolic for their tenacity and instinctual urge to fight against the current. Salmon must swim upstream in order to breed. Some bicyclists, on the other hand, are getting labeled “salmon” lately. And it’s not because they are breeding or following their instincts. Some cyclists are riding in bicycle paths, however they are riding in the opposite direction of traffic. Are upstream riding cyclists being lazy?Or are they trying to get attention? Does it still feel safer to ride in a bicycle lane, even though it’s on the wrong side of the street? I’m not sure…

Teen Tweets About Speeding Before Killing a Bicyclist

Did tweeting about speeding on Twitter via mobile phone distract a teen from driving, and therefore cause him to lose control of his car and hit a bicyclist? If the capability to brag via the internet from a mobile device were not available, would this cyclist still be alive today? Is mobile phone usage while driving—texting, email, and social media updates—becoming a weapon against safety with U.S. citizens? I, like many other Americans, am a smartphone user. I am a busy attorney, husband and father, and with that comes the need to always stay connected. Accessing the internet via my…

Weekend Motorcycle Rides in Marin County

Every Saturday and Sunday morning while most residents of Marin are still sleeping, avid motorcyclists are already out on their weekend morning rides. If you live near Shoreline Highway, you can almost set your clock to the motorcycle engine echoes as they come by right on time. Of course, over the years I have let the squids take off earlier and have a half hour lead. If you want to ride with the post Sunday Morning Ride group, just swing by Starbucks in Tam Valley at around 8:00 a.m. If you want to be a part of the cherished mayhem…

Claude Wyle Interviewed on NPR about the Plea Bargain for Chris Bucchere

A San Francisco software developer pled guilty to felony vehicular manslaughter after crashing his bicycle into a pedestrian and killing him. The San Francisco D.A. says it’s the first felony conviction in the country for killing someone with a bike. Despite pleading to a felony, 37-year-old Chris Bucchere won’t spend any time in jail. He’s getting 3 years probation and 1,000 hours of community service. Is that a fair sentence? Here is what reportedly happened in this case—as I’ve discussed before on two different blog posts. Bucchere was riding his bike downhill in the Castro district at around 30 m.p.h.…

San Francisco MUNI Bus Safety Guards Reduce Injuries and Should Be Required

We assume that all MUNI busses in San Francisco are built with the strictest attention to safety, right? The San Francisco Municipal Railway system is an integral part of San Francisco’s infrastructure and MUNI busses transport thousands of people to and from work and home, and they keep our commerce alive and flowing smoothly. Of course, San Franciscans trust that our public transportation is safe and we travel confidently each time, right? What about the operators of the MUNI busses and trains? They are well trained to do their job, aren’t they? Many San Franciscans as well as visitors rely…
