Travel Safely

According to the local paper, "The Georgia State Patrol is predicting 3,570 traffic crashes with 1,398 injuries and 16 deaths from 6 p.m. Wednesday to midnight Sunday." Most of those will be motorists, some may be pedestrians, cyclists, or simply bystanders.

Many people think of bicycling as being a particularly dangerous activity, and that they are safer in a car. But traveling in a motor vehicle is extremely dangerous. I'll talk about that more at some point. For now, however you travel, do it safely. If you are driving, do not exceed the speed limit, be alert and focused on driving, and don't even think about going anywhere if you might be intoxicated.
