Make your own bike lane – while you ride – with lasers. I’ll take one!

    Technically imaginative, but potentially very harmful. This “virtual bike lane” would imply that there is a full car lane to the left (or right) of the cyclist. A car trying to maneuver with a good understanding of bike lanes could create a very dangerous situation with traffic either oncoming or in the same direction. Also it would look completely incomprehensible with riders 2 abreast or one rider passing another.

    Duly noted.

    What I really want is an invisible “force-field” that surrounds me like the laser bike lane. Wait! Then no one can pass me beers.

    How about an airbag suit?
