Honda Bike Simulator Designed For Safety Training, Not For The Extremely Lazy

So I guess Japan is really serious about bicycle safety, so much so that Honda developed this bicycle safety simulator that allows riders of all ages to learn proper traffic rules and manners before they get on the road. The simulator includes different courses and scenarios like “going to school” or “going to the grocery store” and a rear mounted LCD even allows riders to see traffic coming up behind them. The simulators will be available from Honda starting in February of 2010 for an undisclosed price, though pre-orders will be taken starting in November.

    Well I think every vehicle should have safety simulators to go through. Practice makes perfect. Hell I'd like to see a simulator for the DMV that allows people to quickly drive a short circuit to see if they are still in condition to drive. This would stop a lot of people from just “renewing” their license and being able to be back on the road without any tests. I am proud of Honda for taking the step to make it safer for bicyclist.
