CNN’s excellent Bike Mounted Video article quotes a bit out of context

CNN’s excellent article “Cyclists use cameras to document reckless driving” quoted our Founder, Craig Davis, a bit out of context saying “Education doesn’t work.

Wearing a T-shirt saying ‘three feet, please’ alone doesn’t work.” We appreciate that...

Thanks to 3footcycling they have arranged for the Golden Gate Division of the California Highway Patrol to start a program in their division of handing out warning letters to violators of the three foot law as a means of educating the...
