Don't ride in the road.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Riding in the road with high-speed traffic is suicidal. Stick to dedicated bike paths, trails, sidewalks, and side-roads. All the laws in the world... all the rights a bicyclist may have to share those roads... they won't keep you alive if and when someone plows through you because s/he: isn't paying attention, is putting on makeup, is chatting on their cellphone, has a sudden onset of a stroke or seizure (yes, that DOES happen, and rather often), has some bee fly through their window and panics, swerves to avoid some other obstacle (oh, say, a motorist in the OTHER lane who is swerving their way), and so on and on and on.....
