Safter: Urban camo.
There have been some instances recently, in which, has been quite late in the evening and I get pretty upset at my fellow riders near me, because they decide to jump the red lights and back to back - they almost got hit. These two instances happened near the Divisadero/Laurel heights area, and I was a tad sad when I got home because the thought of witnessing something gone wrong, just because the impatience bug wins, would have been just terrible.
I even came up with a new word, while trying to explain it to one of my friends.
That it is safer to wait for the red light to turn and to make sure that everybody sees the same traffic flow. Of course same goes to cars, I have seen (most recent criminal) at Market near Church a car plain out ran the red light. It is an intersection full of all kinds of traffic and luckily no one got hurt.
Be careful out there. Have your lights and batteries at their fullest.
And remember, we are camouflaged bici angels in this beautiful city. Life is too short.
Mucho love. ♥xxo.m
