What constitutes a proper stop?

Another excerpt from Bicycling & the Law by Bob Mionske

"although the law requires cyclists to stop at uncontrolled intersections, stop signs, and red lights, the UVC is silent on the definition of "stopping" as specifically applied to cyclists."

"If you want to fight an unfair "stop means dismount" argument, this is the logic to use:

- I did stop, and the stop was of sufficient duration under the circumstances that any reasonable cyclists of my level of experience could safely and courteously observe and appraise the need to yield or proceed.&quot; About the book: <a href="http://www.baltimorespokes.org/article.php?story=20070824221054497">http://www.baltimorespokes.org/article.php?story=20070824221054497</a>;

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
