NHTSA, AAA join together for National Bike Danger Month

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and AAA have joined together to promote National Bicycles Are Dangerous Month.  I don’t understand why the US DoT would think that AAA and the NHTSA have any experience with bicycling.  They’re both catastrophically automotive organizations.  If anything, they have institutional imperatives to discourage cycling, which is exactly what their so-called safety recommendations do, by portraying bicycling as a dangerous activity, and placing the onus on cyclists to be safer, even though all the 100 daily deaths on US highways are perpetrated by cars.
