Taking iPhone pictures from your bike sounds like a good way to get hit by a car.

(Before that, it was "hit by a trolley car" since I just moved to SF and live on a cable car corner.)
Indeed. I normally wouldn't do it, but I had been tailing the car for blocks, and despite the green light, we were actually at a stop (it just changed as I snapped it).

I will admit that I am 99% certain I'll take a car door to the front tire someday. I'm just hoping I'll make it.
