    my cousin-in-law posted this on facebook:

    The Magnetic Yellow Card

    while I wouldn't want to have to spend a bunch of money making magnets to throw at cars, I like the idea. Though, in this day and age of lawsuits, I could see a driver accusing a cyclist who used this of "sabotage" or "vandalism" or even some sort of vigilantism... the "hey, I know I was talking on my phone while driving, but you threw something at me!"

    ah well, I still like it

    There is so much animosity in that link, I got a chill down my back.

    I hadn't read the comments before I posted the link here because I hadn't realized that they were there (these days, there are ALWAYS comments...)

    anyway, yeah, there's a lot of animosity AND there were a couple arrogant cycling fools who do actually believe they are above the law. As someone else commented, I would be interested to know how many cycle vs. auto accidents are caused by the cyclist doing something blatantly illegal. Not that a cyclist who runs a stop light deserves to DIE, but traffic safety is a two way street, pun intended
