Just thought I'd let everyone know there are 7 bicycles in the trash on
charles street in Medford.   Charles street intersects Spring street.
The bikes are in front of a house a couple houses away from spring
street.  The location is right near RT 28 and Foodmaster.  There is a
Columbia tandem bike in the mix too!  A Nishiki, Fuji, 2 columbia girls
bikes, a Chiorda with Balla brakes.  They were there when I drove by
Staurday afternoon.

radar or maybe rfid would work, but it would take some doing to
integrate with gps. as another commenter stated, gps is read-only.
you're talking about sort of a mashup or overlay of live object tracking
and static gps maps.


at that, this idea would only work for people who have the technology in
their cars.


so, the simplest approach still is to be visible and ride defensively.
periodic driver training courses would probably help, too, but i doubt
any political body would pass such measures.


	People are talking about this being implemented at a radio layer
	communicating your position to whereever etc.  What I was
	was using radar or somesuch to detect moving objects and then
use the
	already in place gps systems to announce that you were
approaching a
	very slow moving object (or heuristically a
	Such systems already exist in various forms for high end cars to
	primarily for deer (or at least that's how it's sold, the market
	this kind of car is likely to live in their mcmansion in the
middle of
	nowhere and commute an hour to work).
