Why do some drivers get so annoyed by the mere presence of cyclists on their roads? Why do cyclists react the way they do?
In Letters to a Driving Nation, the author – a cyclist - explores this ongoing conflict, by de-constructing real-life situations he’s experienced in his decades of cycling. These stories – some amusing, some downright scary - are intermixed with illuminating and well-researched op-eds on topics of interest to both drivers and cyclists.
This book is a must-read for both new and experienced drivers as it provides a cyclist’s perspective on how drivers should and shouldn’t interact with cyclists. Cyclists will want their family, friends, and loved ones who drive to read this so they can get a better appreciation for what it is like to be a cyclist on our roads.
