"Depends on the part of the neighborhood that you're in but yet elaine. Yes there's a very very wide right is very. This is no European road. Yes European road. This is people who had plenty of space when they were planning this neighborhood. So you've got offense is what I say a man so you've got sidewalk. Maybe some berm their designated lane lane going in one direction double yellow line lane going in the next direction so a designated area Sidewalk Your House my house. Hello Dan so you got. I'm waving from a social distance. You've got to sidewalks. Choose till designated lanes to be in K. or the medium in the wwl. Line makes no sense to me. What is going on there so I want help understanding I want all the long distance track runners all people to explain how under any circuit. I've always been told that you if you are a pedestrian. You're supposed to be moving in the direction of oncoming traffic cars. That say should see you. This is the sort of old information that I am prepared to have. Many people tell me is old man information we call them man information. That is no longer relevant but I was taught in school along with all of the all the hand signals. Yeah is that you ride a bike if you are on the road or in this case the the lane the European road. Yeah the American road is for cars going this way. The European road or Sub is where you as a bike person. Go with traffic. So you treat yourself like a little car okay and then I was always taught that you walk especially if there's no sidewalk that you walk against traffic Yeah I think that's probably some kind of Psychology thing where same. Try to make eye contact with people when you cross the road like if you see a face looking at you you know this is gonNA sound really stupid. But if I have discovered in twenty years of crossing streets in San Francisco that making eye contact with any driver before you start. Moving is a huge advantage for a pedestrian I think that is a social social psychology phenomenon. Partly of of attention and partly of I need you to see my humanity. If I turn my full face I I make eye contact it not only ensures that we both know each other are there. Hello I see you crow right. And then I think that unconsciously makes them go better not killing. That's the theory anyway. Okay so one thing is okay. Let's get one out of the way. Maybe he's a little bit Wackadoo and maybe a project for him. Maybe he in his head. He's in a funny mid late independent Phil poor grabs a gump. Maybe HE'S A. He's doing a fun thing where he's going down the middle of the road as like a personal art project. I mean it is now the D. It's not safe. It does seem to the dump I'm trying to get to. I want to try and understand what this person's doing that's just so that's one first of all. Let's take is read. That's crazy what he's doing to me. Now here's the other and this is what I had to learn. I would agree with this more state. The fact I think this is a law California some crazy laws and certainly of course. San Francisco has some crazy laws. I think when you're a bike. A bike is allowed to as they say. I don't love this Dan. I'm just putting this out there. They are allowed to claim the lane or in this case the American road. So if if you're a bike in this wackadoo state you can basically treat yourself like your own personal car and like people aren't allowed to like honking yell at you and hit you. Whereas of course in Florida you're obligated to to throw trash right and mountain dew cans. Anybody who's on a bike because you just assume they. D- What right people do it for fun so trying to get this all out of the way. I do not understand this and I think it's going to be awkward for you personally alone to do this. Okay I think you need to do is get with your other neighbors. Who are probably as as weird a full of concern as you are want to say. Dragnet I don't mean a literal net or or clothesline as we used to call it in. Let's call it a workforce. Let's call a tire spikes okay but something that'll slow him down long enough for you to get him in the sack and then you have a series of questions for him double line. Yeah I have a lot of questions for him now. You brought up another concern that I have also concern it stands. Yeah A. B. B basically. I'm just glad this is back. I missed this. I've got a lot of thoughts about this. Could be a load bearing idea on the show. Again has a concern. I know well okay so here. Here's another question. Now I like to. I like to think that when when people are and they don't call them ten speeds anymore one of the call those kinds of bikes now. They're not ten speeds. They have like fifty feet. What do they call that style? A bike a lot of what you're saying so like when we were kids. There were two kinds of bikes the bikes that didn't have gears and the bikes that did and regardless of how many years it had in the nineteen seventies. You call it. A ten speed was a ten speed. Maybe twelve handle SARS fifteen but yeah dropped. Handlebars you leave. Really really talk about the Santa Fe at some point. Okay yeah okay..
