    Another Example of Driver Idiocity

    bicyclists_need_to_stay_on_sidewalk

    I like this particular portion, where he basically admits to driving in a reckless manner.

    Instead, I had to speed ahead and veer away from the fast-approaching rear end of the car in front of me, just barely making it into the right lane.

    It's hard to get that outraged. Judging from the comments on the web page, I doubt that the back seat of his 2001 Saturn is going to be seeing any action any time soon.

    One comment really stands out --
    Uh .. Z .. there are things called “facts” that journalists are supposed to be concerned about .. so —

    Biking Regulations on Campus

    http://www.bikes.msu.edu/msu_regulations/index.html

    “ .. Since bicycles aren’t legally allowed to ride sidewalks on campus ..”

    ...

    Facts. They’re hard.

    Love the First Amendment.

    Works both ways.
    Never get into an argument with an idiot, they only drag you down and beat you with experience.

    I read this as a feeble attempt at satire, altho' it seems that subtlety in execution is not his strong point
