Flagstaff cyclists ought to work on fixing this. Turns out in Flagstaff, bicyclists must yield right-of-way to right-turning motorists, even when in a bike lane/route.
Here’s the code:
“Section 9-05-001-0015 Right of Way At Intersection: Upon approaching an intersection, any person riding or operating bicycles in a bicycle lane shall yield the right of way [...]
Why do we tolerate this in our city? Our freeway interchanges have far better landscaping — and shade — than this.

This officer (Deputy Alvaro Arizpuru) apparently believes that cyclists must [...]Read More..>>
A friend of mine just called me to ask if there are any easy, safe, fun bike rides he can do with his young daughter. He was wondering if the TNBR might be a good option, but apparently he went to my blog and read the recent posts about it and thought he should [...]Read More..>>
A client of mine sent me this wondering if I knew anything about it — which I don’t.
Watch the officer in the middle of the screen very carefully at 0:26. Exactly what is he doing? And if he just did what I think he did, is he still on the force?
