Does it bother anybody else that the police officer quoted in the Spec article emphasized the importance of kids wearing helmets on their bikes, rather than the importance of PAYING ENOUGH ATTENTION TO THE ROAD THAT YOU DON'T HIT PEOPLE? I find this deeply disturbing. Are we so hopelessly engrained in our car culture, that when somebody does something illegal and reckless that seriously injures someone - that we blame the victim because they weren't taking the required safety precautions for trying to navigate our city in any way other than behind the wheel of a car? Grrrr.
