I wrote to the columnist about whom I recently posted. He wrote me back and said he is writing another pro-cycling column and asked for help. I don't know of any resources like the ones he is asking for...if you do please call or email him. Thanks.

(his note to me)
"Thanks for your observations and information. I plan to do another column on
bike riding in Houston and will quote from your message. Do you know of a website where I might find a list of laws
or rules or courtesies regarding how drivers and cyclists should treat one another? Do you know whether this is something being taught sufficiently in drivers ed classes? I took the safety course after getting a speeding citation a year or so ago and can't recall any coverage of cycling issues. My phone number is 713-220-7112 at the paper, and 713-582-5666 on the cell. I'll be working on
the column in the morning and would appreciate it if you can find a few minutes
to give me a call twixt now and noon tomorrow..
