    I dunno makes sense coming from a professional driver, and is a valid complaint about cyclists.

    Wasn't that bad, definitely wasn't worth 10 minutes of video to have a cow about a 10 second blurb.

    I have to agree -- his complaint seems reasonable and based on reasonably accurate information. At least in my experience, cyclists on the average seem to ignore/disobey stop signs and red lights significantly more often than cars. I don't think it's really a safety issue, as it's usually only done when it's safe to do so, but I can understand why it would be annoying to somebody who has to obey the traffic control devices.

    ... though I don't really understand the idea that motorists can't do it too. They do -- just not as often. And really, I don't care -- as long as they make sure it's safe first.

    And agreed, it's not worth ten minutes of it just to hear him ***** about bikes for a minute at the end. If you don't want to hear about driving a bus, just skip the video, or listen to the last 90 seconds or so.
