Steve Weeks replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion ATA: Compliance with Must Stop for Pedestrians law very low in Chicagoland
"I stop for pedestrians, and if possible, try to take the lane momentarily as I've had drivers go around me. Then I've had to ask pedestrians at times to GTF across the street... they want to give *me* the right of way (some car drivers do…"

Steve Weeks replied to Serge Lubomudrov's discussion Has anyone ever fallen asleep riding a bike?
"It doesn't actually say that he fell asleep, though you'd think he wouldn't be at risk for cardiovascular disease.It has been known to happen, as with Ed Burke. An autopsy might have clarified this. I've fallen asleep on a…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I see what you did there. ;-) But it's not a completely symmetrical relationship, is it? Who has the power (horsepower), the momentum (massive), the numerical superiority, the "established" social status? Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I agree with you completely. But as the "new kids on the block" (and, yes, I know that cyclists were on the roads before cars, but hardly anyone remembers that), we are in a sense under the microscope as far as motorists are concerned. The…"

"I consider this the "glass ceiling" for bicycles as serious transportation. We will never get full respect on the street as long as significant numbers of us are flagrantly violating traffic laws. Today I encountered a rider heading west…"

"To the well-coiffed woman in the SUV on Jackson Blvd a couple blocks west of Union Station trying to cross 2 lanes (with no traffic) to pull into an alley: the expression on your face as I gave you a long blast on my air horn was well worth the…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"Jenn, you are too charitable. That guy was an asshole casserole, a right prick. It wouldn't surprise me to hear he was exiting a BMW, Mercedes or Cadillac. Keep riding and remember the old latin saying: "Illegitimati non carborundum",…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"When I get criticized by a driver (it would work for a rider as well) for violating what they think is the law, I will say (if time and circumstances permit) "Are you ignorant of the law, or do you just not understand it? Would you like me to…"

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"Aren't we being a little pessimistic?  ;-) There is still plenty of great, comfortable riding weather left. I won't be putting the studded tires on until the end of November! Steve "

"Does this qualify as "hate speech"?  ;-) Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"To the young woman riding east on Polk Street on a black and yellow 'cross bike: If you're going to ride in the drops, you should consider wearing underpants. The visualization of the intergluteal sulcus is always a touchy issue, best…"

"Don't speak HIS name in vain! Nyarlathotep . . . the crawling chaos . . . I am the last . . . I will tell the audient void. . . . Steve "

" How about: "There's enough hate in this world; try not to contribute (or provoke) more." Steve "

"Is that what they mean by "pampered cyclist"?  ;-) Steve "
Aug 28
Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"Nothing to report about bad behavior by car drivers recently... but, like the weather in Chicago, all that's necessary is to wait. ;-) However, lots of cyclists not acting like traffic: -the guy who blew past me on my left today without a sound…"
