What ever happened to common sense? Oh yeah, it was destroyed by political correctness and environmental extremism.
The latest example of this is the designating of portions of our badly needed, over-crowed roadways just so some folks can ride their bikes around.
As each new rule to make life easier and safer for these recreational riders is enacted, they get bolder and more demanding. Running stop signs, riding in huge herds, riding abreast instead of in-line, often crossing over the space allotted them, no lights in the dark on too many, etc.
Incidentally, most of the roads are largely paid for by taxes on cars and fuel, so it’s about time there should be a usage tax applied to bicycle riders.
