I run across only occasionally a major paper columnist willing to stretch out and cover interesting, unconventional topics as George Monbiot routinely does. His most recent Guardian column, discusses radio-assisted car monitoring.
He starts by mentioning the bicycling death of a friend at the hands of a rookie automobile driver. From there, the discussion turns in the direction sure to infuriate both civil-libertarians and the Nascar crowd in equal measure.
Nice to see Velorution, a very good cycling-for-the-masses-blog, doing their own monitoring of the Monbiot-mobile.
Update: How will we ever make minor strides to an energy-independent and car(e)free future when someone hollers: OBL Wants O-I-L?
