Re: re : James 51
What is the difference between a cyclist passing through a red light when it is safe and a pedestrian (i.e. you) doing the same?
Agility. Pedestrians have a much greater range of senses to detect if they are about to get themselves killed, and can change direction pretty much at will. Cyclists move at higher speeds, look generally only ahead (their range of vision is in the 150° range forward) and need to brake/swerve to change their position.
