Bicycles belong on the road, registration free

When answering this question, it is useful to look at countries and cities that have provided excellent bicycle facilities and assess whether they have imposed registration fees on cycling. The countries that have the highest rates of bicycle friendliness, most notably the Netherlands and Denmark, do not charge any registration fee for cycling.

Is it OK to kill cyclists?

Cyclists die twice as much per kilometer travelled than car travelers. Yet nobody cares. Aggressive drivers are a menace to other drivers but they are a far more deadly threat to cyclists. Having already experienced many incidents over only a year, but nothing injurious as yet, I understand that you have to be extra cautious because there is cyclists are not given any allowances to the law. Cars will stay very close when passing (some have even come extremely close, and have extended side mirrors - a pretty obvious attempt to wing me), cars will cut left across cyclist lanes without checking, reverse out from parking, directly into your path, tailgate you when you have no bike path option. Car driver aggression shows complete contempt for the cyclist’s life.
