Editorial: Safety for cars and bikes is a two-way street
A few weeks ago we wrote in this space about the benefits of making cities like Farmington and Rosemount friendlier to bikers. Encouraging people to bike around town rather than hop in the car every time they need to run an errand provides a natural form of exercise, and it allows people to better experience the city where they live.
But there’s more to making the streets bicycle-friendly than striping bike lanes. It also takes some cooperation between bikers and drivers.
