Stop 3

Temperature at departure = 42° F (6° C)

Another one of the things drivers hate about cyclists is that they don't seem to pay any attention to red lights.

Yesterday morning, JLT and I pulled up to the intersection at 103rd and Metcalf and watched as close to 20 cars east-bound on 103rd ran the light after it turned red. As I headed home and pulled up to the same light - 10 east-bound cars ran that red light as well. This morning I decided to take my camera along.

Unfortunately, by the time I started recording, the light had already turned red and I missed catching the first light runner. Still ... I count 11 red light runners here.

Wow. Aren't there cameras at that intersection?

It's a good thing licensing drivers and registering cars completely eliminates illegal behavior like this!

Hi Warren,

This is Peter up in Kirksville, Missouri. I'm helping promote the biking revolution, which supports cycling in all respects including environmental sustainability, community development, fitness etc. I found your blog from a link you have to an article about the Superhero Bike Ride.

I'm looking for people to help the biking revolution gain traction for it's online campaign. In return, we promote the content of those bloggers and newswriters who help us.

Just place this link in your post(s):
Biking Revolution News

Please let me know if you want to know more! I check e-mail regularly and I'm free to chat often!

Have a good one,

-Peter
