Beware of Headless Pedestrians and Cyclists Who Can’t Reach the Handlebars!

While doing the very involved job of building a replacement website for Advanced Drivers of North America, Inc., I’ve had to give myself a break and have a couple of minutes of fun.

I took this photograph (which is unaltered) while I had a couple of my other instructors with me in Malibu, California, a couple of years ago.   (We get sent to some truly terrible places to do our work! 😀 )

Anyway, while hands-free cyclists might not be as rare as they should be (often messing with cell-phones and other gadgets), I think the headless pedestrians will — hopefully — be a less-common hazard!

  1. ‘Indeed, it could be argued that the cycle lane encourages cyclists to ride faster and pedestrians , who are far less responsive to the presence of cyclists than cyclists are to them, tend to wander into it.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Reed. Yes, I would agree with that. And there is also a danger when pedestrians cross the road — whether legally or otherwise, and sometimes hidden from sight between static vehicles — and then step straight into the path of an approaching bicycle without looking.
