ASK A TROOPER: Bicyclists: Riding with traffic the way to go


I read an article a few months ago that said that most bicycle accidents happen while riding with traffic. I feel safest while facing traffic. I think that it is a shame that the law has us riding so I can’t see behind me. How did they ever come up with this law? Please talk about bicycle safety as well.
