It’s a good idea, but it’s sad that this is what it takes for someone to feel safe…
Daily commutes used to be tough for Warren Huska, who cycles 18 kilometres from his home near the Beaches to his office in North York almost every day.
“People get really insulated inside a vehicle,” Huska said. “They don’t really know where the edges of their vehicle are.”
But, for the past year, drivers have given Huska a wider berth.
Now, when he mounts his trusty two-wheeled steed, Huska is protected by a pool noodle.
Strapped to his bike’s frame with bungee cords, the floppy foam cylinder is a reminder to drivers not to get too close.
