As an avid bike rider, I get in conversations from time to time about the relationship between bike riders and “car people.” It doesn’t take long to get into a conversation with a car person when you tell someone about a dangerous encounter you, the bike rider, had recently with a car, truck, bus or other moving vehicle. We’re all quick to blame each other for breaking the laws.

Sadly, not much research has been done regarding who’s better or worse, vehicle operators or bike riders. One recent, study done in Denmark has provided the first facts about this subject.
