Helmet rule likely to go on Bexley's books - Columbus Local News

By LAURA ENGLEHART Published:  Monday, July 26, 2010 4:53 PM EDT Bexley city officials are expected to impose a new law next week that would fine parents if their children are riding a bicycle in Bexley without a helmet, but not all officials agree they should intervene.

Bikes and Cars: A Lesson in Los Angeles - NYT

Bikes and Cars: A Lesson in Los Angeles By  JOHN COLLINS RUDOLF City of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles on a jaunt earlier this month. Attending the Copenhagen climate conference last December, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles had a revelation: his own city needed to do more to promote bicycling as a clean form of transportation. “I’ll tell you what I came away with: that in the area of bicycling, I’ve got to do a better job and the city’s got to do a better job,” Mr. Villaraigosa  told  Southern California Public Radio. Last weekend, however, the mayor learned a tough lesson about urban cycling firsthand: cars and bikes don’t mix. read more...
