I'd like to be older when I die

I'm seriously thinking of never riding a bike again, having just had my second serious crash in just over a year - despite it being my default mode of transport since I was 12 years old. I don't really want to stop, but I also don't want to end up a vegetable or dead. What are some non-obvious defensive (bicycle) riding techniques for an experienced rider to start using? How do you force yourself to learn and use them after 20+ years of habit? [more inside]

What to do about a "fender bender" in MA?

In Massachusetts: Yesterday on my way to work, going about five miles per hour in morning traffic, I bumped the car in front of me. (My fault; I was totally distracted by the kid waiting for a school bus who looked like he was about to run into the middle of the street.) We pulled off to the side of the road and I took a look at the "damage" -- a couple of scratches to the paint on the (plastic) bumper.... [more inside]
