The rules don't apply to me, not really, because the circumstances are widly different. I'm not always going to stop at a stop sign. I'm not going to sit at a redlight like a fucking jackass unless traffic forces me to. I don't have the same acceleration, protection, blindspots, or weight to justify it. Die mad.
Cycling laws are motor laws retrofitted without my safety or best interest in mind.
However, I'm not really mad about that, I'm mad about the focus on cyclists not following the laws, not for any real reason, but because of 'not fwair!' feelings, which is fucking laughable consider the amount of shit cars get away with every second, with far more disastrous results. Not to mention that few motorists actually know what the laws are regarding cyclists. (Or honestly motorists as well).
I drive deliveries in sububiura and if I had just a dollar for every retarded thing I see during just one shift, I'd be a fucking millionaire in no time.>>1261185>Dude it isn't unheard of for cyclists to kill pedestrians
It is however nearly that>or cause accidents with other cyclists.
Alright, fair. However, it's more easily avoidable, and unless you're riding in a pack, you're not going to be braindead on the center line while the dude who hit you gets three states over unharmed like a car accident. Him, his bike, or both is going to be fucked up enough to place blame.>No, whomever is the cause of the accident/crash is the one that made the situation dangerous
I'm not saying be a wheelie kid and ride straight toward traffic in the wrong direction or swerve or whatever. What I'm saying is the mixing of cars with cycles is what turns a safe activity into a dangerous one and not the other way around, and that's why there are signs and lines and lanes and lights in the first place. Introduction of cars threatens my life. Introduction of cycles just pisses off driving boomers.
EVERYONE should pay attention, but until motorist need extra care
