Chicago Mayor seeks fines of up to $500 for reckless drivers
Chicago Mayor (and cyclist) Richard Daley wants the city to impose fines of up to $500 for motorists who endanger cyclists and cause them to crash, according to this Sun-Times article. "When someone opens a door -- that's why you have to be very, very alert on a bike," Daley said. "Yes, it's taken place. And [there were] a few choice words. Every biker does that -- salutes the driver in a Chicago way."
