The operators of the aforementioned '1 tonne machinery' are expecting other vehicles in their vicinity to behave in a predictable manner; when they don't, that's when Bad Things happen. Therefore all vehicles, regardless of whether they have 2 or 4 wheels or are engine powered or leg powered, need to follow the same rules.

That being said if I'm riding through a quiet residential neighborhood and there are precisely zero motor vehicles in sight, I'll ignore a stop sign rather than break pace, and I'll call any other cyclist who claims they don't do that too is a liar.
>>
>>1262390
That would be cool if we first started by holding motorists themselves to those standards in a meaningful way and also educated them as to how cyclists are supposed to be behaving as I've been told both to get on and to get off the fucking sidewalk.

Until then, I will do whatever the fuck I feel will keep me safest, dad

>You don't own a car or have a drivers license, do you? I can tell.
I've been driving since I was 17 and drive for a living now delivering pizza to fat retards who've lived in their suburban town 'my entire loife, boy!' and won't be told how to drive.
I don't know where you live, but I made sure to move far the fuck away from there where people actively target cyclists have turning off their lights and crossing the yellow line at you, throwing things, yelling things, and that's just the shit that they're aware of. Every single bar in this area has a FULL parking lot and many of them have a cute little nickname for them by the locals indicating the amount of drunk driving that happens there.

Maybe you cycle in a place like where I moved to and can't imagine a place where the same family has lived for centuries and is in bed sucking the dick of the police force, great! I'm happy for you!

There was, in the earliest third of the 20th century, in the French Pyrenees, a tramway line from St Girons to some lost town in the mountains. Look up how small and unpopulated the area was and still is. Absolute proof that "rail to every small town" is in fact not an unrealistic demand.

Even if SSTs were still a thing, they'd still be a fucking meme. No average person will pay extra to get a little bit faster to their destination. Which results in a select few airlines having tiny fleets of SSTs because there isn't enough use for them. Ergo, they're a meme.
If you really want to go ultra fast, stop being an atmosphere cuck and build a space shuttle. At least then you don't have to build a dumb pointy tube with triangle wings and overheating issues.

real talk the a320 is a nifty aircraft, clearly better than 737's, and the the mask on the a350 looks good, but other than that i dont get the appeal at all. the best aircraft airbus currently makes wasn't even developed by them.

Appreciation thread for abandoned/defunct lines. Pic related: Milwaukee Road's abandoned Pacific Coast Extension. A transcontinental line abandoned in the 1979 during the railroad panics and bankruptcies of the late 20th century. It was the only electrified transcontinental line. IMO losing that kind of infrastructure was a tragedy.

inadequate gearing and inadequate reliability.
Touring on roads you can generally hitch a ride or bus out of trouble but if you're on a dirt track in the middle of nowhere that's not always an option so you need more reliable gear. It also sees more abuse. And yeah the gearing is not nearly wide enough.

I've done some pretty crazy dirt routes where i'd have been completely fucked if my bike broke down. Dying fucked.

This passed just a few hundred feet from my apartment, but it looked like it was going to rain and I have a ton of shit to do so I didn't bother. Also, it was so cloudy that you could easily hear the jets flying over but couldn't see them at all.

Which city has the absolute most retarded roads ever?

My vote goes for the suburbs of SLC.
>Turning lane that goes into oncoming traffic to make a left turn on to a highway
>Highways that have fucking stoplights instead of exits
>Has people that don't even know how to merge onto a fucking highway on the interstate anyway
>Coordinate style addresses that are overly confusing
>Roads that are actually nice are the ones through the valleys
>The same valleys that see snow 9 months a year
>That aren't well maintained during snow storms
>Speed limit is 65 but 1 inch of snow and half an inch of ice driving more than 30 mph through a curve = driving right off a fucking cliff
>Every time road work is done, the other 5 adjacent roads must also have road work done to assure that you have no detour route and are forced to be stuck in traffic while you drive through that area

Don't get me wrong. SLC is a nice place aside from the tweakers and homeless people. The roads and the drivers are some of the absolute worst shit in the country though. I'd rather go back to DC and be stuck on 270 again then deal with some of the traffic here.

I'm both a cyclist and an auto enthusiast. As with anything, absolute beginners are going to make mistakes. There's no reason whatsoever that an experienced driver should make those types mistakes with any significant frequency. If you've been driving regularly for more than a few months, if you take the responsibility seriously, and if you're not a complete idiot, those types of mistakes will become very rare. Most drivers don't take the responsibility of driving a car as seriously as they should, and their failure to do so puts people's lives at risk. There is not a good excuse for that.

I drove a car quite a bit in my youth even though I'm opposed to the entire concept of personal everyday use cars now. Never came even sorta close to hitting anything.

See, you were a retard and almost maimed someone and had the exact wrong response. Part of the reason cars are bad is because most people are too stupid and unaware to safely operate them, and thousands and thousands die needlessly every year as a result. Instead of making this realization you said "I'm stupid and irresponsible, therefore everyone should be allowed to be stupid and irresponsible".
