The problem I have with the "Freds"(and that's not accurate---Freds are dorky commuters, IMHO. What you're describing are DUI cyclists) is their utter refusal to obey the rules of the road. I never see someone who's wearing a helmet and riding a bike shop bike(not being snobby, I hope) salmoning into traffic while wearing black and having no light. But I see the homeless/DUI/Wal-Mart bike guys doing that all the time.

But when they get hit and killed on the road? The media reports "cyclist killed in crash".
