    What I usually hear is, “Get on the sidewalk!”


    The ignorant savages don’t even realize it is dangerous and illegal to ride on a sidewalk.

    Why city road ways need bicycle lanes.

    You are correct.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but I was taught bicyclists have as much right to the road as car drivers. In fact as a grade school kid a neighbor drove up behind me on a narrow high crowned street and blew his horn. I swerved, almost falling. I unleashed a string of invective at him. He told my mother. She wanted me to go apologize to him. I said I would if he apologized first for almost causing a serious accident. End of story. Another a.. hole got his just deserts.

    A bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, so they are indeed supposed to ride on the road.

    The world is full of idiots – too easy to end up dead right.

    In the UK there are problems on all sides. There are car drivers who crowd and bully cyclists whilst at the same time there are cyclists who ignore the rules of the road (do not stop at traffic lights, cut people up and ride down footpaths at full pelt whilst ignoring cycle paths). I think it is just some people overall are idiots as bagbalm stated.

    re: lektio

    They are considered a slow moving vehicle and MUST allow others to pass them. They just usually don’t, because they are about as selfish as it’s possible for people to be. Why? Because the cops give them a pass for breaking the law and after 30 years of it, they feel entitled to do whatever they want, no matter who it hurts.

    I biked from 1982-2000 and how most bicyclists had no courtesy and didn’t obey the traffic laws galled me no end. Id be riding the correct direction in the bike lane and bikers would ride illegally and expect me to get out of their way. I’d stop at a stop light and some jerk biker would blow through it— almost hitting me as I sat there waiting for the light.
    .
    Trouble is, that little tin god attitude often gets them into trouble. The accident rate alone should make them want to change, but like so many other protected groups, they want what they want when they want it and have no concern or anyone else.
    ,
    The usual breaking of the law like Frazz is doing here really got old. It’s a really bad habit to get into because eventually you do something illegal without looking to see if a car is already occupying the space you want into. CRUNCH. Naturally, it’s the “car’s fault” even though they were legal and the biker was not. A lot of examples in Portland where a biker runs a light a smacks a vehicle. But it’s never their fault…

    I have done plenty of city riding, and have even used regular car left turn lanes on busy streets. I’ve never had any real problems…so far.
    And yes, a Bicycle has ALL the rights of a car on the streets, but they are expected to obey ALL the traffic laws, as well.

    I just returned from Portland and the problem only seems greater there due to the number of bikes.
    The danger is that so many bikes are out at night with no lights. They are invisible with a car behind them.
    As a group, they are no less populated by asses than those with cars.

    There’s a point in this strip that’s going unnoticed. The driver attempted to insult those guys, but Frazz turned it into a compliment.

    Once a guy told me to use the side walk while riding my bike. I told him that I’m not walking and I paid tax too.

    How is Frazz breaking the law? He seems to be inside the bike lane…

    When bikes can keep up with the flow of traffic they can take up a lane of travel. Crooked, rural, narrow mountain highways are not the place to peddle your rear end around on because you risk your life AND the lives of the people in motor vehicles.
