There is a great safety consciousness among people. Bicycles without lights or reflectors, driving while talking on the phone, reckless driving... What can be done about this? It's not a question of fines but education.

Is it only my impression or are bike riders growing in numbers? This should be good, for traffic and health. Is it safe for riders?

I had to drive downtown and back yesterday from the suburbs and was surprised by the traffic, both ways, in January! This wasn't the case years ago, when traffic dwindled considerably in summer. On the other hand, when we hear there are some 800,000 new cars every year, something has to be done to improve public transport, parking spaces, working closer to home, decentralised offices, entertainment, activities. Is anybody doing this?

There seems to be less pickets these days, or is it my imagination? Maybe the cold, or everything is fine.

Anybody uses the bicisendas and the bikes provided regularly? Any anecdotes, warnings?

I think safety for bikes needs to be improved urgently. I see few bikes with good lights, fluorescent vests, mirrors, helmets, etc. I wonder how many accidents are happening, both to cyclers and others due to this lack of safety, most of which don't make the news.

Having driven often through different neighbourhoods and suburbs of Buenos Aires due to my job, I have the impression that you need to know how to drive in different zones and this is the secret not only for avoiding crashes but also theft and robbery. For example, I need to drive slowly in downtown and respect every single sign, but if I drive through XXX (to be replaced at will) you would be suicidal to stop at a red light at certain hours of the day and it is highly preferable to speed through. In between, all sorts of different driving techniques. Anyone has had the same experience?

I just came back from an electric bike guided tour - in English! - organised by the city government tourist office. All information in English at: http://www.bue.gov.ar/?mo=portal&ac=componentes&ncMenu=876Loved it and made a couple of friends too. Highly recommended if you like biking and open doors.

Anybody tried using the bicisendas? Are they safe? Can you really get around? Maybe a group of us could get together and share the experience. It could be a peak hour experience and a week-end one, maybe to compare... and take somo pictures.

Can I drive with an American driving license in the city? On highways? I haven't had problems in Brazil, Peru and Bolivia, but want to make sure here...
