Fritz, you said the "honor the stop" campaign is outrageous. I am just curious as to why you feel that way. Is it the idea or the way the it program is carried out.
 
Russ, I "Honor the Stop" but to tie a campaign encouraging cyclists to obey the law to a homicide in which the cyclists were obeying the law is a strange disconnect for me.
 
I see your point and agree with you.
