Cyclists & Drivers: Sharing the road in L.A.

Cyclists ride through the streets of L.A. and describe the joys and hazards of sharing the asphalt with motorists in this Los Angeles Times video.

Los Angeles, a city once in love with the internal combustion engine, has begun a romance with the bicycle. Can it last? Should it?

From September 2013 through February 2014, the Los Angeles Times editorial board engaged readers in a conversation about changing attitudes toward the region's roadways and the people who share them, especially motorists and cyclists. RoadshareLA looks at lessons learned from the discussion and attempts to shape an agenda for divvying up the asphalt.
