Ah, yes. But you didn't answer the question. Let's try that again.
"What is the matrix filling the gap between the teeth? This just doesn't look normal, and I've never watched a veneering, so I don't know the process. The teeth look cemented together.
I'll bet that doesn't help the gingivitis at all."
This is a completed prep....Ok.... this is mid prep on natural teeth. This is the beginning of the tooth preparation process. Once the teeth are fully prepped the remaining structure doesn't touch. The veneer is designed to touch each other once cemented. Does that help?
A motor cyclist thought the car used lanes wrong. Next light pulled open door reached in a caught a bullet out of .380.Some States consider automobiles and places of work as covered under Castle Doctrine. If she opened the car door uninvited in one of those States…shame on her. Otherwise, yeah probably.
It looks like a bicycle lane (red) next to a pedestrian crossing (white bars). It also looks like there are traffic control devices for both the motor vehicle traffic and for the bicycle and pedestrian lanes. There was no bicycle however... the rider was on a motorized scooter. It is hard to say for sure who was at fault as we don't know the state of all of the traffic control devices. We also don't know where this occurred and how motorized scooters are classified there and where they are allowed to ride. In that locale it could be that turning traffic is supposed to yield to through traffic. The NY V&T definition of traffic is: Pedestrians, ridden or herded animals, vehicles, bicycles, and other conveyances either singly or together while using any highway for purposes of travel. Also, in some countries motor vehicles are automatically assumed to be in the wrong if they hit pedestrians, cyclists, etc. My guess is that the scooter rider probably was in the wrong... but due to the lack of information that is a guess.Hey Grizz! So far as I know, you are the most expert in this thread concerning bicycle laws...
Who is at fault?
1. Looks like a legal turn.
2. All traffic proceeding forward, the light must be green.
3. Bicycle clearly should have seen the truck turning.
4. We don't know if that is a dedicated bicycle lane, but I doubt it. Looks like a pedestrian crossing.
I suspect the law mandates that the vehicle yield to any pedestrians on that crosswalk, but I don't know about bicycles. It might be argued that the bicycle over-ran the legally turning vehicle.
What's the verdict? Hang the driver, or push the whining cyclist aside?
