hmm nope, its the law, you on a bicycle is riding a vehicle, a pedestrian on a sidewalk will always be in the right and you as a rider should always mind pedestrians as simple as that
Posted in: Tokyo is in a unique situation for an advanced country. In some places, cyclists are considered the same as pedestrians, and in others, they are allowed to use the road properly. If you tried to ride like you do here in other countries, you would be scolded.

thats fine, I dont believe in god too, but if you hit me while I walk around, that would be you hitting me with a vehicle - meaning you will pay me great amount of money for even a tiny scratch, help yourself though I certainly wouldnt mind 2-3 sick days and a yearly paycheck bonus from you.

I gotta say that even though this guy seemed like a sleaze before the elections, he actually seem to be genuinely caring for Tokyo and its residents with regards to current and future planning and exercising almost business like caution about future budgets.
I quite like his plan to develop more cycling facilities and now this discussion.
Seems like a bit of fresh air after that money embezzling right wing madman that was in the help for way too long

cyclists dont belong on sidewalk unless specifically marked, as a cyclist,while I walk I have never ever moved from someone riding a bike towards or behind me and its absolutely doesnt matter how many times they will ring the bell.
Bikes = Road or designated cycling side.

actually I think any public official should be using their personal money to travel , the high salary they receive is meant for that already.

if the black boxes were handles back directly to officials, I tend to think that there was a reason.
Rebels dont get any weapons from Russia, they dont need to, there are plenty of bases they can take over ( which is also why they can down military planes - they took over Ukrainian base filled with BUK systems)
Its very funny though how US and EU people think about Ukraine and Russia , they are same country if you didnt get it till now and most people living in "rebel" areas are Russian and Russian speakers... the invaders are Ukraine army since they trying to enforce a rule these people dont want, same as in Krimea.. you can check that Ukraine in fact is a Russian - Slavic word... the only evil is bloody US stirring the peace. paying off Kiev nazis to alienate Russia so that US will be the major Gaz provider to EU...

I would go as far as to say most of the chikan claims are total bonus, most people here, especially women are way touchy and overprotective so overreact to things that cant be avoided in public overcrowded traffic.
that is why I stopped using public transport here

Alexische , your information is extremely skewed and mostly just simple propaganda
Simple example would be you using the term Palestinians.. , its an incorrect term since no such state ever existed and a pigment of imagination really.

yabits, hamas has been answer to noone, Gaza people hate them and afraid of them ( mind you Palestina arabs are primarily secular society and moderate muslim society ) - hamas took power by force killing many people and establishing strict sharia law.
The sooner Israel pushes full force and gets its done, the better to everyone - Egypt should give a hand too .

Good energy saving feature would be starting to introduce smart meters like in most civilised countries and lowering the prices while increasing solar power subsidies...
Posted in: Energy-saving measures that don't have to be repeated every day are effective. There is no need to go overboard. What is important is trying to streamline the way you use electrical appliances.
