I am sure that not every motorist speeds, runs stops etc... as we have a few right here that state they follow all the laws to a T... yet you just made a blanket statement about Motorists.
Or maybe Joey simply did not encounter the infinitesimally small fraction of motorists who follow the letter of the minor unenforced traffic statute. I only drive a few times a month but I've had raging cagers threaten me with bodily harm because I maintained 45 on freeway where the posted speed limit is 50.
This thread gets to the heart of just why I avoid my car at (most) all costs.
(I'm pretty successful at staying away from it, too. But that's almost beside the point.)
I simply can't stand to be among those people in their cars. It's just not fun anymore.
Yes, on a bicycle I'm still among them. But it's different. There's really only a few short stretches where I have to be among them literally. There's all sorts of other paths available to a bike that puts some distance between us.
