LA's Roads Aren't Safe For Cyclists

"Another cyclist suffered a brain injury when he struck a pothole and crashed in Sherman Oaks. A third died in Eagle Rock after hitting a patch of uneven pavement and flipping over his handlebars."-LA Times
Ooh, there's a new piece from the LA Times, L.A. faces skyrocketing costs for lawsuits over bike crashes, and it tells of how the city and our taxes just paid off cyclists $19 million in injuries they've had from our poorly kept streets.

It's a great piece on how poorly run the city's infrastructure is maintained, which is like...not at all. Or in a way that makes so little sense it's sad.
