Just a word of caution… this Wednesday (3/14) is the inaugural “Share the Road Safety Class.” This is the diversion class hosted by Trauma Nurses Talk Tough, that was recently made official and has been in the works since last June.
It was set up to educate cyclists (and others) about traffic laws and offer a way to have some bicycle-related citations dismissed.
I give caution, because Traffic Division officers are also aware of this class and they just might feel more inclined to seek and cite bicyclists who break the law.
So watch yourself, especially in hot spots like Ankeny and Salmon in southeast, the approach to the Broadway Bridge in northeast, and the west side of the Hawthorne Bridge.
