“cultures and conveyances collide”

It’s a more interesting crash than usual, except the aspect about a teen driver not being attentive and plowing into something 😦

THe bright side, in my humble opinion, is the opening paragraph: “Bicycles, boats and horse-drawn carriages would be an unlikely mix in many places, but in Maryland’s southernmost county, bordered on two sides by water and home to miles of back-country bicycling roads and an Amish community, it was just another Sunday morning.”

To that author, the roads are “back-country bicycling roads.”

Not bicycle paths, not roads where those cyclists insist on invading at their own risk thank you… but “bicycling roads.”

  1. But the last paragraph is telling. “They don’t know if the buggies or bicycles had lights”
    So what? They were sitting at a STOP LIGHT!!!
    The teenager was obviously not paying attention.

  2. True. Sad but true. We’ve got a ways to go.
