With the well documented and tragic results of large vehicles getting too close to cyclists, this video should get someone fired.
From one of our own awesome BostonBiker.org bloggers Bicycle Canticles.
These personal recording devices, like GoPro, and cell phones are helping to bring clarity to situations that would otherwise be a “he said, she said” situation. But this is damning video evidence of dangerous behavior by a clearly unqualified bus driver. And I can say from personal experience that nearly identical things have happened to me multiple times from bus drivers, I was never able to get this sort of damning video evidence of it though.

Look at them legs! Energy efficient toasters, get them. At least that is what I took away from this.

I love/am creeped out by, this guy doing his best Hal9000 impersonation. These intersections are horrible, and he does an amazing job of illustrating exactly why. Come on city of Boston, throw a little love (and money!) to the pedestrians and cyclists at these intersections! Hopefully their answer will not be “I am sorry Bikers, I can’t do that Bikers.”

This should be everyone’s new favorite pasttime, filming cops not caring at all. Sigh. Could it be that this officer was reading instead of watching where he was going…could be.
Luckily for all involved this was a relatively harmless interaction, but if you can’t count on the cops to follow the rules, who can you count on?

I got sent this shocking video today…honestly someone should be given a new assignment. The longfellow has recently been reconfigured and its pretty horrible the way cyclists are funneled up onto the sidewalk, but with cops like this doing…something (this guy certainly isn’t protecting or serving anyone) I hope no one is in an accident because they certainly are not sympathetic to safety on that bridge.
The current bike lane situation on the bridge could be made better in so many ways, but having an officer literally parked in the lane and then having his buddy behave like this its only a matter or time before something bad happens.
Thanks Ben for sending this along.

Capitalists make products for us! I am not a big fan of big business, but I see this sort of thing more as a sign that cycling is getting really big. Cycling is growing at a fantastic clip, and big companies smell money. You don’t have to spend lots of money on fancy bike jeans, but its nice that we make up a large enough demographic that someone is trying to sell us fancy bike jeans.
First its jeans, then what, dedicated well maintained infrastructure? Huzzah!

The MBTA blocked access to a bike path with a giant snowbank when they plowed the parking lot at Wellington Station. We decided to do something about it!
This is a great way to get things done, but honestly, what the hell MBTA just because your systems break down in the snow doesn’t mean you have to plow the rest of us in. Cycling and Pedestrian infrastructure shouldn’t be a secondary priority during snow storms.
