[[image:road_wars.jpg::inline:1]]NBC Channel 4 News  reports on the hottest recent trend to hit Los Angeles, bicycles. As more of these bicyclists emerge on L.A. City streets, will the battle for road space get bloody?

How do bicyclists fare in this hostile, and sometimes unforgiving, auto-centric environment? Are concepts such as courtesy and sharing lost on the typical frustrated Los Angeles’ motorist? Will a network of segregated bicycle paths need to be created in order to protect bicyclists from impatient motorists who feel that they just  cannot safely navigate the road with bicyclists present. Will wrong-way bicycling ever stop?

Channel 4 News attempts to answer these probing questions in a not-so-in-depth video report.  :: View Video ::
