Of Course, His Handle Bars Will Be Safe in the Event of a Crash…

“Dear PoP,

I always wonder what the point of carrying a bike helmet is if you don’t wear it. When it’s on the handle bars it’s an additional hazard!”

Truly a bizarre sight.

Now I swear I’m not posting this to be a jerk – I’m genuinely curious. Have you ever seen a cyclist yield to a pedestrian? I’ve recently become addicted to the bikeshare program and I’ll be honest, personally, I don’t think I’ve ever yielded to a pedestrian. So seriously, just out of curiosity, have you ever seen a cyclist yield to a pedestrian or if you’re a cyclist have you ever yielded to a pedestrian? Do you think that behavior will become more common as the bike lane network expands?
