. . . ďBut, Cyclists disobey laws all the time, they run red lights and stuff, so screw them!Ē
Yes, I do. I ride my bike safely. The rules say Iím supposed to pretend that Iím a car, but see, thatís dangerous if Iím the only one obeying that rule. Iím pretending Iím a car, and you think Iím a bike, and you run over me and kill me with your car. This is bad for both of us. So, the minute you treat me like a car, Iíll start acting like one. In the meantime the difference between when you break the law and when I do is that youíre endangering my life, and Iím endangering your Ö wiper blades? Maybe? Probably not even that. . . .
