Cheers to the safety dorks

Americans are known for a certain level of dorkiness when it comes to safety, what with our seatbelts, guardrails, and allergy warnings. But all those naysayers who poke fun at our safeguarding ought to come to London to see the cyclists. Not only do they use their helmets and headlights, but the majority also wear reflective vests that are so official-looking that I spent my first few days here marveling at the number of bicycle cops around town. Bravo, cyclists!

    I feel nerdy enough just wearing my helmet.
