ryan: the fact that most accidents occur when sidewalk riders enter an intersection doesnt surprise me one bit. When I ride a sidewalk, I assume every car at every intersection is going to do something against expectations. So I wait until they commit to their move. If I have to slow or stop, then so be it. if cars aren't looking out for me on the street, they certainly aren't looking out for me on the sidewalk. even at a slow speed i would never blindly go through a crosswalk showing a walk sign.

I'll stick to the sidewalk on dangerous busy streets, and leave my safety in my own hands and not every single car that passes me on the road.
