    Re: One Vs You

    I'm not sure what you mean . . .

    Are you asking about the differences in:

    "One has to be careful when riding a bicycle in the city."

    "You have to be careful when riding a bicycle in the city.'

    If you want to be objective and rather formal, everywhere you think you need "you", use "one" instead.
