Whilst motorist are told to 'think bike' sometimes it is the bike riders that need to 'thinks cars'!

Bike riders, including motorbikes, think they have every right under the sun when on the roads, they don't stop at traffic lights, they weave in and out without a thought for other road users, they are a law unto themselves!

I would agree there are many good cyclist on the road, but in my experience, the majority of them are thoughtless and selfish.

I hope the driver today is not too badly hurt and makes a full recovery!

Drivers are told to 'think bike' but it is cyclists that need to 'think cars' ... cyclists are a law unto themselves! They ignore traffic lights, weave in and out busy traffics and seem to think they are the law on the road. They are selfish and reckless, a hazard to ordinary road users, often riding in the middle of the road holding up all the traffic.

There are good cyclists but in my experience, bikes are a menace on the roads.

I hope the man today makes a good recovery.

Im pretty selfish when it comes to cycling! Always go through red lights. I cant be asked to stop, wait, then get going again. Better to just keep a steady flow going. I even go wrong way down 1 way systems and stuff. F5uck it. I guess its an adrenaline rush!
