"It's the "due care" part that I feel many cyclists forget about. From the motorists' point of view, some passing on the right looks reckless. Then they might tend to forget about *their* obligation to use due care. There may be…"

"A few days ago on the 10:00 news (Channel 5 IIRC) there was a segment on bikes with cameras. They showed some close calls, and a lawyer said when there was video evidence in a crash, there was much less trouble getting a decision in favor of the…"
