How far do you commute now?

On a bicycle, of course. If it varies, take an average. If you are not bike commuting in the winter, answer as you would in summer, on days that you commute by bike.

Are you riding these days?

And if so, are you using studded tires?

How should motorists handle intersection bike lanes?

If there is a dashed bike lane at an intersection where cars can turn right, how should motorists turn right? Current Maine law and traditional practice says drivers must move to the right in advance of the turn and make the turn "as close as practicable" to the right curb. So if a bike lane is present at the intersection, should a motorist merge into the bike lane in advance of the turn to get next to the curb, or stay out of the bike lane until he or she actually begins the turn? (Different states say different things, if they clarify it legally at all. For example, California law says motorists are supposed to merge through the bike lane, Oregon says they must turn from left of the bike lane.) IF YOU HAVE COMMENTS, YOU MAY USE THE DISCUSSION THREAD OF THE SAME NAME.

Are you Car-Free?

One of our members recently took the plunge and got rid of his personal car. So in recognition of Ian, I thought it would be fun to see how many others of you have taken this step, or perhaps have never even owned a car. Note there are two dimensions to this question, so you can check one or two checkboxes as applicable.
