-oOo- So riding against traffic is much safer than riding with the flow.Not  legal in texas but I'll take my chances with the cops rather than losing  my other eye in another bike accident.Thanks for the info. Art  Link,San Antonio.TX,USA" 1% live to ride and ride to live"    Art,

Completely OT. Please, in order to know the relative risk, you need to know how much mileage is ridden against and how much with traffic. I'll bet that vastly more bike traffic is with the traffic compared to against it. So the crash incidence leading to emergency room care demonstrates how risky it is to ride against traffic, when riding with it is an alternative.

And don't miss the tag line.....or fail to take it seriously.

If you don't believe in random sampling, the next time your doctor orders a blood test, tell him that he needs to take all of it.
