Madison has already been named the best city in America for those who ride a bike. We've got more bike trails than we know what to do with, for goodness sake! Now, in an effort to keep bikers safe from evil motorists, we have this. I like the first two comments on the article. Is this seriously necessary? This is common sense. If you open your car door without looking and hurt some innocent biker, you're an idiot. If you open your car door without looking and some guy comes and clips it off as he drives past you, you're an idiot. It's as simple as that. This is right on par with wanting to ban drive-thrus and plastic bags, as appeared on Drudge this summer.
Madison, Wisconsin... what can I say?
