Bike Share, Check. Helmet? Not Always | TIME.com

Bike shares are becoming a popular way to lessen the burden on public transportation and get cities to shrink their carbon footprint. But as most cyclists are noticing, you’ll have to bring your own helmet.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

As a California bike injury lawyer, I think bike sharing programs are great in that they  promote bicycle use.  However, it is important to note that helmets are essential gear for bike riding safety.  Most bike sharing programs nationwide do not provide for sharing of head gear.  If you participate in one of these programs, you should “cover your lid” by buying and wearing a helmet.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Glad to see that the motorcyclist in this case was able to walk away from this incident.  Cars pulling out in front of motorcycles are one of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes.

If a Professional Race Car Driver Can’t Talk on a Cell Phone Without Hitting and Killing a Bicyclist, What Make You Think You Can!!

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Professional race car driver, Frank Wrathall, is currently on trial in England for the death of a bicyclist that he hit while driving his car and talking on his cell phone.  Apparently, he denies being engaged in #distracteddriving but, the authorities have him on tape talking on the phone and his cell bill to prove otherwise.  This just goes to show that all of us non professional drivers also need to stop using cell phones when we drive!
