"Huffy vs. Hummer"

Here's something interesting, a week-long debate between Will Campbell and Randal O'Toole about cycling in Los Angeles.

Today, local blogger Will Campbell and Cato Institute senior fellow Randal O'Toole determine who bears responsibility for the road rage between cyclists and motorists. Later in the week, they'll debate public funding for bike lanes and paths, cycling activism and more.


Who's to blame for road rage? That's easy - stupid people - regardless of their transportation mode. Honestly, you can ride like a complete moron, ignoring stop signs, riding on sidewalks, etc, and you'll piss people off. On the other hand, you can ride as a lawful, vehicular cyclist, and you'll piss people off. Screw 'em. Don't let someone else's rising blood pressure cause a similar rise in yours. Smile, wave, and use some language that would make a sailor blush.
