Bike to Work Week

It's Bike To Work Week in Chicago.

On day 1 of bike to work week:

Someone in a parked SUV opened the door on the street side.  Without looking.   An oncoming cyclist went flying:
Clinton Miceli, 22, was thrown into the path of oncoming traffic and run over by a passing vehicle after hitting the car door, police said.
The driver was ticketed.  The cyclist is dead.

On day 2:

A city bus hit another cyclist.  The bus driver was ticketed and suspended.
The victim in Tuesday morning's accident was listed in fair condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
Tomorrow is day 3.  Who knows what it might bring?

What I think I'd like
is an airbag for my bike.
