It shits me to tears that cyclists aren’t considered quasi-pedestrians in most jurisdictions.

Why? As a bike rider I am fine with DUI laws. Its not my doing that my state declines to apply them to me.

I’m talking more generally than DUI. Ok, sure, technically a bike is a vehicle, but come on. They weigh like ten kilos so their status as vehicles is negligible.


#26

Why is vehicle mass important in this context?

Bicycle riders are protected by laws which define bicycles as vehicles. Why do you want to remove those protections?


#27

I was hoping for a high speed pursuit…


#28

And take away some union jobs?


#29

I am very pro cycling, but part of that is taking responsibility and accepting that bicycles can still be dangerous
