But Delta is the low hanging fruit that is the most easily changed.

It also changes dramatically the physics of the impact.

Sure it wont take the cellphone/cigarette/newspaper/razor/hairbrush/eyeliner/drumsticks/rubics cubes/sandwich/coffee cup etc out of car drivers hands but it is the component that the rider owns 100%.

Lastly , it doesn't matter who's at fault, the rider is the one most likely to die or be substantially hurt. Riders must take full responsibility for what happens when they choose to laneshare.
