Via Boing Boing: a 60's bike safety film to prove that monkeys on bikes like to do things differently and end up dead. You want to stay alive? Then don't monkey around. And don't wear masks that make it difficult to see out of.
Here are some of the things the monkeys on bikes like Rooty, Tink, Floog, Rosby, Slim, Trigby, Nel, Filbert, and Stan don't like to do which humans should:
- make signals
- watch for signs
- keep right
- license (yourself) and register (your bike)*
- no buddying
- no sidewalk riding
- use lights and reflectors
Except for Orville. He did everything right and look what he gets to do: eat a picnic by himself.
- Don't try to get a bike license in Ontario. There's not such thing here; it's controversial; and it's a ridiculous idea that's been tried a few times by governments and proved ineffective and inefficient.
