Can you believe this guy made a bike out of old sneakers?

Did you know today is “Bike-to-Work” Day?

This past week was “Bike-to-Work” Week (May 16 to 20) and this whole month is “Bike-to-Work” Month– sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists. The whole cause seems to be linked to reducing your carbon footprint and encouraging healthier activities. Given that the average price of gas is teetering around $4.00/gallon, riding a bike might not be the worst idea. If you have a long commute, you could be spending $100/week — even if you drive a car that gets good mileage.

Eliza Barclay of NPR writes on“Bike-to-Work” Day today, emphasizing the animosity between automobile-drivers and bicyclists that she witnesses everyday. She also shares a link to the 5 most common collisions that occur between cars and bicycles and the best ways to avoid them. Click here to check it out.

Interested in who is considered more at fault? I was too. I checked into this at Mass.gov and I still don’t have the answer for you. What needs to be considered is comparative negligence. See more here.
