calling for the universal installation of bicycle lanes. I was concerned — and still am — by the number of cyclists injured and/or killed each year in collisions with motorists. And the number of “doorings,” in which cyclists are knocked off their bikes by drivers who open their doors without looking, is astronomical.
The best drivers are predictable drivers. You can’t get much more predictable than a perfectly functioning, ego-less computer. I buy into the modelling, but I will forever have trust issues with computers, from performance to security. Traffic engineers are tasked with handling it all: geography, technology, climate, human behaviour and financial constraints.
