Even if you don't bike, watch out for bicyclists and share the road with them.  Sure, they're annoying with their Critical Mass and their bright not-so-stylish clothing, but they're just trying to be visible and raise awareness.  Cyclists account for 2% of all road deaths and injuries.  It is said that the first automobile accident in the United States was in New York City in 1896 when a vehicle hit a cyclist.  Awareness matters - U.S. cyclists are three times more likely to be killed than German cyclists and six times more likely than Dutch cyclists.  It's considerate, it's life-saving, and it's the law.  Please share the road.

      Living in Davis (bike capital of the USA) I bike everywhere and know the importance of awareness. If local motorists ignore cyclists, there will be many avoidable accidents. Also, cyclists must be courteous to motorists. We can't just cut off cars and expect for them to always be looking out for us. It is up to everyone, and, ultimately, requires very little effort to save many lives.
