For Ron Van Houten, a psychology professor who rides his bike to work at Western Michigan University, the key to cyclists and motorists sharing the road well is courtesy. He's found, as I have, that most motorists are careful and considerate when they're around cyclists; those who yell expletives are rare.
Van Houten, who serves on the National Academy of Science's Transportation Research Board, said a culture of courtesy makes all the difference. ``Courtesy promotes safety,'' he said. And, he said, where there's little courtesy, there's a tendency toward aggressive driving.
But courtesy isn't just for motorists, Van Houten said.
