    Unfortunately, the way a LOT of people drive, AND RIDE, it’s all too true.

    Typical bicyclist: “I am a vehicle! Unless it’s to my advantage to act like a pedestrian.”

    I see the cyclist/driver divide exists elsewhere other than the U.K. Hmm. I found riding in France, Germany, Austria, Netherlands & Belgium an absolute pleasure. Even Paris was a whizz. In the U.K. I don’t venture out on a bike unless fully lit up and with neon viz jacket, even if only down to the café and back.

    Conflicts between driver / cyclist / pedestrian are in inverse proportion to the cycling facilities available in each country.

    As a cyclist, I ride on the sidewalk along busy roads. If there is no sidewalk or if the only sidewalk is under the overhead powerlines along the road, I don’t ride there, I find another route.
    (BTW, in many parts of the USA the power distribution system is old and decrepit with rotting wooden poles leaning over at 30 degree angles and somtimes wires break and fall to the ground making a big loud humming fireball. That is why I avoid being under them.)

    WTF does gun control have to do with this you troll? Cyclists have the LEGAL right to be on the roads. If more people were actually shown the laws, and PROPERLY trained in driving, we’d have fewer accidents. Based on the driving I see, current driver training is a waste of money.

    In most states, a bicyclist has the exact same rights AND responsibilities as a motorcycle rider would. Ride safely, obey ALL the traffic rules, and so forth.
    Sadly, there are WAY too many bike riders out there that like to blow through stop signs since it’s a pain to unclip out of the cleats, and clip back in, they ride against traffic, and the like
    I used to carry a bicycle with me in my Semi, and have ridden in about 35 states. It seemed to be the same no matter where I went. When I rode following the laws, I NEVER had a problem, even in Cities
    A little common sense goes a long ways, folks. .

    And please give us examples of they “politicize everything.”’

    Do you ever provide examples or sources for your statements? I’ve asked these of you repeatedly and remain disappointed. Want examples of these evasions?

    Ah,my old digs Sharuniboy. I cycled west on Mississippi to Washington Park every evening to do my 10 laps, or about 20 miles. The tough area was the block in Glendale up to Colorado Blvd. I was twice knocked off my bike by vehicles taking my right of way. Shattered a hemet on the curb, and road rash. Did either driver even stop despite seeing what they had done? Nope! I used to love the Breckenridge to Vail cycling trail. Denver was far more cycle friendly on the whole, than any place in Utah.

    Scott, it’s hard to tell sometimes,but I hope you were being sarcastic about drivers obeying the traffic laws. I can sit on my porch and watch drivers run the stop sign on my corner. I have counted and seven out of ten drivers run the stop sign, some without even slowing down.

    Yes, some cyclists are “arrogant” , which when your vehicle is 4,000 pounds lighter than your “opponent”, isn’t smart. At the same time, my son-in-law was hit while in a bike lane, by a gal (83 years old) who drove right into him, and shouldn’t have had license to drive an electric scooter, let alone a Buick.

    The real issue, on cars, bikes, and guns, is that the U.S. will let anyone “drive” without licensing and regulations that apply in most countries, where all three potential death threats are greatly reduced.

    I don’t know about the U.S., but in Germany you are in REAL trouble if you kill a biker. You are in the same kind of trouble if you drive like a maniac on a bike. Justice, you know, and fair and balanced to boot…

    It’s even worse when you hit a moose in the middle of traffic in downtown Toronto. The American tourists just go crazy. They applaud and throw money.

    promised, about 8 hours ago @omQ R:
    ‘Sure. Give me cartoons and dates. I’ll go back.’

    I’m really looking for the data on the U.N. question.

    Ansonia also asked: ‘In the meantime, can you back you statement?’

    I’ll ignore the incorrect English as possibly due to a typo and that you meant a possessive “your”; but I remain puzzled by which statement you want me to “back” up?
