As for not wearing helmets .... that is as important as wearing chartreuse tights ... a non-issue for drivers or other cyclists.

As for wearing dark clothes ... people drive black cars.

As for taking the lane .... I will pass on this We all know.

Don't pay for roads? Sheer ignorance.

No lights is an issue at night. Often self-correcting, judging by reports on cyclist fatalities.

Feel entitled? Some folks do ... no matter what conveyance they choose.

As for rolling stop signs ... more than cars, yes. And since intersections are choke points, getting a bike past the intersection and down the road ahead of traffic benefits Everyone.

On the other hand ... drunk drivers.

As for acknowledging drivers .... needs better definition. If it means waving ... how am I supposed to wave at cars behind me? How do they know if I am waving at them if I am facing forward, and how do I ride forward safely if I am turning back to wave at cars?

This thread is now officially ridiculous.
