The wide wide world of the Feed

Well the Feed was certainly geographically varied this morning, from India to the UK, Seattle to the far eastern corner of Tennessee. There were also lots and lots of motorcycle wrecks again. Seriously you guys with the motors have to learn to ride those things better, and also not drink when you ride. The level of BAC that is legal as a cager will get you killed on a scoot. That’s the bottom line of drinking and riding motorcycles, the level of impairment is magnified when part of the workload includes keeping the vehicle stable and rolling on its tires instead of falling to the ground or worse. Also drinking was involved with not being able to see and avoid cagers, many cyclists that were hit over the Xmas and New Year’s holidays were hit by sober drivers violating the motorcyclist’s right of way, but the riders were drinking and unable to avoid. Don’t make me start another blog devoted to saving you scooter drivers’ lives, we’ve already seen what a mess that made of my life just taking care of the bicyclists. 😉

First up is a notice from a Seattle blog about an APB and citizen’s alert for a car suspected of being involved in e cyclist’s hit-and-run. Hit & Run Injures Cyclist – SPD Looking for Car I have only seen 2 articles from this blog, but I like it. No bombast, no hate, just news for the neighborhood and make of it what you will. That’s so unlike, say this blog.

From the Tri-State area of TN (TN, VA, KY) is a report on bike wrecks caused by dogs. Dog laws’ bite varies I have been in communications with various cyclists in the area and the majority of them say loose dogs are a worse hazard than motor vehicles. They have a real dog problem out there.

From the UK a man has been charged in the death of a 10 YO cyclist. Man charged over cycle boy death And apparently this is as much information as we are going to get until the trial is over, as a result of UK media laws that prohibit releasing evidence to the populace to prevent “trial by media” that happens so much in the US.

And our final article is a report on police gone wild, using an “Interceptor Van” as a weapon, hitting and killing cyclists, motorcyclists, and anybody else that got in the way… Interceptor goes on rampage near Kalupur; one killed Apparently the driver of the van didn’t like 2 wheeled transportation, as they seemed to be the only target for his destruction.

And that’s the Feed for this morning, but keep an ocular organ pointed at this blog for further updates at any time.
