Evolution in action

California bicyclists would be allowed to roll past stop signs under proposed law
Cyclists would be allowed to pedal past stop signs — without stopping — under legislation proposed by two lawmakers who say it would make the roads safer.

The two-tiered approach to the rules of the road — one for cyclists and one for cars — is unlikely to ease growing tensions over sharing California’s roadways.

I’m in favor of anything that would allow Californians to voluntarily remove themselves from the gene and voter pools.

    Traffic laws vary over the 50 states and various Federally administered areas.

    Here in Arkansas, bicycles do NOT have the right of way, and are specifically enjoined “not to obstruct traffic.” Same for pedestrians.

    Every year as new airmen rotate in to the local base, the local emergency room sees a steady stream of patients from places where they were once lords of the highway.

    Too bad they didn’t bother to check the laws of the state they just arrived in. Or, for that matter, that the base doesn’t run an orientation session of some sort for new arrivals.

    Apparently the LA Times is one of those sites who has decided to fight back against adblockers. I can’t read their articles, I get a popup stating that I either need to white-list them or become a subscriber. They’re the 2nd site now that I’ve come across who’s doing this. I really hope its not a trend!

      Must be. I use ABL in Pale Moon and can still see the article, though. I think the sites getting hardcore on ad blockers will find they’re cutting their own throats in the long run.

      I get a lot of that, and I’m not even running an adblocker – my default browser is Konqueror, part of the KDE desktop.

      It appears the webdweebs are using various browser-specific hacks to determine precisely what kind of content they’re going to ram back at the viewer.
