    I'm with that. And Idaho stops shouldn't be a problem unless a car completely runs the 4-way.

    It's a little weird that Lego Man comes to a complete stop, looks left right left, runs the light and gets creamed.

    =v= Sorry T.A., but the looks-right/looks-left/gets-creamed sequence probably isn't going to convince the target audience.Is there some unwritten law somewhere that a bike safety P.S.A. must always be fundamentally flawed?

    If I understand the Idaho bike stop law, bicycles can treat stop signs as yield signs & red lights as stop signs. Mr. Lego Bike did just that, stopping at a red light & observing traffic conditions before continuing. He did everything correctly under that law, unless he saw the car that was legally running the green light in its direction. That's why I have a problem with this psa.

    …i would suggest that the first rule in teaching kids about bike safety is that until they've gotten old enough to read & monitor traffic situations w/ the utmost respect for their own safety, that they learn to follow the "old" rules……one step or pedal revolution at a time…
