1. They’re trying to move about. Who does that?

2. They’re in the road. Like, why would a vehicle be in the road?

3. They breathe air. Selfish jerks.

Bicycles are vehicles and must obey laws. But so must motorists. If they don't and accumulate points against their driving privilege, they will then be bicyclists as well. Heres a true story....

I had a fellow coming up fast behind me over on Wells Road a year or so ago. In a 25mph school zone. There was another vehicle coming from the opposite direction and this other fellow obviously was speeding up so he could blow me off and whiz by me and not have to slow down and wait. At the last minute, he slammed on his brakes because the oncoming vehicle was a Pima Co. Sheriffs Deputy. :scared:

The Deputy slowed to a near stop and then the other guy slowly passed within one foot of me. His side view mirror nearly clipped my elbow. Wrong move. The Deputy did a U-Turn and went after him. I later saw this same Deputy and he told me that fellow got two nice fat tickets. $800. For speeding in a school zone and illegally passing a bicyclist. I applaud that!

Arizona law is that when there is no bike lane, a motorist must wait until traffic clears and then and only then pass the bicyclist by going completely into the other lane. Many good citizens obey this law, but as many or more do not. But after an $800 fine, they may re-think their behavior.

Cyclists with sport bikes who have the nerve to think they have some SPECIAL PRIVILEGES to take up multiple rack spots! :evil:

You and I both know that too many bicyclists are killed by those who complain about bicyclists. There is nothing lighthearted about that. If you had a loved one killed while biking you probably would not have said what you just wrote. Pedestrians and bicyclists come before automobiles.

I wish CPS had some sort of section or special room where we could post jokes and wisecracks and just generally act like kids. Someone oughta ask Pepik to set that up.
