The victim shaming in this NYT article on eBike accidents is a rage inducing. Every since andecdotal story in the article involves a car hitting a cyclist. These are not indicents of kids losing control of their eBike and crashing into a wall. These are kids being hit by cars. There is nothing wrong with eBikes. We should be encouraging kids to get around on their own. What we need is actual consequences for drivers who hit cyclists, and better dedicated bike infrastructure to separate cars and bicycles (powered or not).
