Two from Shadow

Two from Shadow:

The headline touts this as a "ridiculously loud" bike horn, but I'm not sure there is such a thing. It does have pipes. Piiiiiipes </cosby>.

The second is that a Texas state trooper has blown through a red light and hit a cyclist. When I was seriously street skating, we generally felt like the least safe drivers from a pedestrian/skater's point of view were Chattanooga city police, so I'm not entirely surprised. On the other hand, news is when things that aren't normal happen. Hope this guy is prosecuted for attempted manslaughter, but, ya know, same applies for lots of drivers.

The part where the trooper hit a cyclist may be news, but cops ignoring traffic laws is so routine it barely deserves comment.

It's probably not good for my driving record, but I call 911 every time I see a cop ignoring traffic laws and encourage everyone else to do the same.
