Friday Link-o-Rama 7/31/2009

Free-Range Kids - What's the best way to ensure cyclist safety? According to a fireman from Asheville, NC, this can be accomplished by shooting them in the head.

Bicycling Magazine - Bike Lawyer Bob Mionske begins a study of road rage and what causes it. Here's Part 2, as well.

Elephants on Bicycles - Andrew Miller talks about how sidewalks and bike lanes can make or break a neighborhood.

Carbon Trace - Bexley's look at a texting-while-driving ban has some research to back it up.

Transportation Alternatives (via @konaworld) - NYC passes legislation to allow cyclists to bring bikes into buildings - overcoming a major barrier for many to begin to cycling to work!

Slate (via @streetsblog)- All about Roundabouts. With the discussion over the North High/North Broadway intersection I thought this might be interesting for some.

People, not speed.
