"Agreed. And that's a bummer because just as there are bad drivers, there are bad cyclists. I wish giving someone a bike also gave them a sense of respect for other people's property. I do believe most cyclists ride because it's a good…"

Irving Park Rd May 7th weekend Car Damage

One of the neighbors who resides near 6200 Irving Park noticed his outside car mirror broken off from his car which was parked. He called Chicago PD and they looked at clips from a nearby security camera. They observed a cyclist breaking off the car mirror with his forearm. They have the video. While I don't have the exact date it was in the evening of the May 7th weekend. This doesn't help to build our imageSee More

Lake County Enforcement

The Lake County Sherriff's Department are becoming more active in issuing violations (tickets) to Cyclists who go through Stop Lights and signs without stopping. Also they will ticket cyclists riding more than two abreast. Assuming these are on County roads as opposed to Villages and Towns. Might want to be on them look out. See More

Joseph Beemster replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion A Plea for the Idaho Stop
"I like the Idaho stop as a "Yield" rather than un-clipping your shoe and stepping on the ground. But that's only when you can confirm there are no other vehicles on either side. We have to maintain that eye to eye contact. Glad you…"
