The Star's Judith Timson tears a strip off law-breaking cyclists in this piece on the Star website today.
I can't disagree with much of what she says. Heck, I've already written many of the same things. Cyclists who break the law make the rest of the cycling community look bad. I've almost ridden my own bike into cyclists who were riding against lights, without lights, through crosswalks. Sheesh people!
Having said that, the majority of motorists break the law every day -- let's talk about speed limits, folks. And rolling stops? Talk to any Young Driver's teacher about that almost unbreakable bad motoring habit. I get the sense that when most drivers talk about "obeying traffic laws," they are talking about cyclists obeying traffic laws. Those cyclists who do talk about obeying traffic laws, I think, are talking about all road users.
