    Slate's Pedestrian–Cyclist Armistice

    Taking after mtbxplorer, I figured I'd give this its own thread:

    The Pedestrian?Cyclist Armistice: For New York?s Citi Bike program, a 10-point resolution. - Slate Magazine

    Slate's Pedestrian–Cyclist Armistice-130521_cb_bikerules.jpg

    I have to say that I think this misses a whole bunch of points.

    I checked the FB page and not surprisingly, it looks like it has as many negative comments (from both sides) as "likes". I do like the simple graphic representation though. As an aside, when I lived in NY, taking your bike on the subway was considered equivalent to jumping the turnstiles. I am glad that has changed.

    "I will jaywalk/run red lights with caution."
    I give them an extra five points there for being realistic!

    Don`t know what car doors have to do with pedestrians.
    Recalculating....

    Yeah, that's my problem with it.

    On the cyclists' side I don't think pedestrians really care about 1 and 2 (or even 4).

    And on the pedestrians' side 1 and 3 are the same, 2 is a car issue, and 4 isn't really a ped/bike issue either.

    I like how to-the-point the graphic is, but only 1 or 2 of the points are actually a thing.

    Pay attention Yield when a appropriate Don't be a jerk.

    This is what it's all about! not just for pedestrians or cyclists or motorists. Every aspect of life requires us to lead follow or get out of the way but the first step is to Pay Attention. This is the most overlooked step in the process by all parties involved.

    Someone once gave me some good advice that is really close to Don't be a jerkl about how to live a good life. I think it can apply here: Don't be a d*ck

    Pretty simple philosophy and one I try to live by. It works for me.

    If someone is crossing in front of you aim for where the were, not where they are going.

    If passing someone give the as much room as you can.

    If someone is passing you give them as much room as you can...

    And as always...

    smarten up

    be careful

    and pay attention.
