I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing. I do know that my experience is the opposite, in that I see far more motorists breaking the law than I do cyclists. Yes, I see cyclists who fail to stop for red lights and stop signs. As well as those who are operating after sunset without any sort of lights, and those who fail to signal, and in the interest of full disclosure. I have to admit that particularly if I feel that I need to keep both hands on the handlebars to maintain control of my bike. That I do not always signal.

But that overall I see far more motorists who:
  1. Fail to signal turns/lane changes
  2. Fail to stop for red lights and stop signs
    1. To include failing to come to a complete stop before making a right on red
  3. Tailgate
  4. Speed
  5. Engage in all forms of road rage
  6. Fail to turn their headlights on after sunset
  7. Fail to turn their headlights on while using their windshield wipers when it is raining
I could go on, but I think that you get the point.
