My name is Mike and I live in Portland, Oregon.
I bicycle everywhere in Portland. I also own a Prius which I drive about 4,000 miles a year, often to cyclist events.
Last year I suffered a concussion and broken arm from an encounter with a slippery streetcar track on my bicycle. This year BikePortland produced a non-confrontational multi-modal safety video, "When I Ride", which I encourage everyone to watch.
To watch BikePortland's safety video please visit www.bikeportland.org/2012/09/20/portland-streetcar-inc-bta-release-new-safety-video-7710
Again, BikePortland has taken a non-confrontational approach to shared-street mutimodal safety. Putting many different types of vehicles on streets means serious safety issues arise which must be responsibly resolved.
Have a safe ride,
