THE BIKES VS. CARS DEBATE
Following recent articles in The New York Times, The Economist, and elsewhere, this week's episode of The FredCast is devoted entirely to the topic of bikes versus cars and the ongoing debate surrounding the topics of sharing the road, vulnerable road users, the penalties for killing or injuring a cyclist, presumed liability laws, and how to improve the situation on the roads for cyclists and others. Included in this week's show is a long segment of discussion from a recent episode of The Spokesmen Cycling Roundtable Podcast, featuring Carlton Reid and Tim Jackson.
