this time it was a drunk woman who ran over my friend Mike while he was riding his bike. Last summer my friend Scott was run over while out on a morning run by a drunk lawyer. A few years ago it was another friend of ours who was run down by a guy who had multiple DUIs.

:confused:

People are scum. This world is complete shit. Fuck it

Sorry for your loss.

I've read that increasing penalties for drunk driving only acts as a deterrent for a little while, but then the numbers go right back up to the equilibrium.

I don't know what the solution is. Maybe technology, like self-driving cars or vehicles that only let uninebriated drivers operate them.

But whenever those are implemented, they will be implemented too late. :'(

this may sound stupid but i kinda thought punishments for DUI (let alone killing somebody) are harsh, i think mostly because of Beecher's story/character on Oz

obviously that's not the case though

sorry you lost your friend scotty

Ugh, sucks. :( Like, what are the odds?

People need to be smarter about things like that. In the grand scheme of things a taxi or an Uber isn't all that expensive. Better than swerving around drunkenly and risking other people's lives as well as your own.

Fuck drunk drivers.

My city has built some bike lanes downtown within the past five years. They have physical dividers from the motorist lanes, so they are a bit safer than paint on asphalt.

Always hear baby-boomer types complain about them. My supervisor at work is all "waah why is the city spending my tax dollars on bike lanes when I don't drive bikes I drive cars and also I think they increase traffic?" I always love hearing people complain about how bad it is that tax dollars go to things that they don't personally make use of.

Next time this guy goes on one of his rants about how class sizes are too big and public education is failing his kids, I should say "why are my TAX DOLLARS going to public schools when I don't even have kids? Grade-schoolers should start footing their own bills for learning shit instead of scrounging."

sometimes i say i'd be willing to use my tax dollars to get someone the psychiatric help they need.

it's usually about hysterical self-victimizing talk-radio hosts.

FWIW, bike accidents are a huge problem involving sober drivers too.

Yes, so they should make it illegal to ride bikes on the road. You're not going to get the drunks off the road, much less the cars being driven by people staring at their phones, so we should quit pretending like it's fine to have these defenseless bikers out there while cars whip past at 60 mph. Just fucking forget about it and take a car and burn coal and kill pelicans.

motorcycles shouldn't exist

bike lanes just need to be bigger and/or separated

yes. it is incredibly dangerous for bicycles and cars to share lanes. people are just too stupid to do it correctly. There are a lot of bicyclists near where I work and I take a road through a park which is very very popular with bicyclists. The speed limit is 25 but people regularly do 50 mph, flying past cyclists, weaving far into the opposite lane... it's ridiculous, and there are NEVER cops around.

then on the other hand I've seen some bicyclists do really stupid shit. I saw a guy who had a pole attached to his bike which stretched almost the entire width of the lane specifically so he could not be passed by cars. Of course people were just veering into oncoming traffic to get around him. In a different area where the traffic is very very heavy, there is a bike path adjacent to the street and bicyclists still choose to ride in the street with motor vehicles

also drunk driving is something I will truly never comprehend. I am terrified of driving after I have been drinking and count the hours since my last drink, etc.
