Just read the bitches section in the latest Coast regarding bike committing. For those drivers out there who feel the need to be aggressive in your cars when you see cyclists, I bet you were bullied in school and now you wanna give back a little with 2 tones of steel and petroleum products. I don’t ride my bike because I don’t have a car. I ride my bike because I think being stuck in traffic sucks. What if I push the button to go across the cross-walk and then ride across? Are you gonna run me over to teach me a lesson?
Do you really see bikes and cars as the same form of vehicle? First of all, bikes don’t kill people. Secondly, they don’t pollute. Third, they don’t take valuable real estate in the city centre. I could go on but it’s futile. If you feel road rage when you’re driving around cyclists, perhaps you should reconsider driving and take the bus. Cyclists are people just like you. And no they cannot accelerate as fast as you can in your piece of shit car so why should they follow the same laws. We’ll it’s HRM law that cyclists follow the same rules as cars you say. There’s problem number one Bob.
The city should give incentive to bike commuters like other progressive cities around the world do. Everyone wins, even if you in your car coming into the city by yourself everyday (spending hundreds of dollars in fuel you idiot) so no one has to smell you’re morning farts but yourself, can’t understand.
If you don’t or can’t see the benefits of a bike friendly city then you’re a complete idiot and you must believe that dinosaurs didn’t exist (even though you’re powering your car with dead ones). You must think that you’re lazy fat ass lifestyle of driving everywhere is going to last forever. You got another thing coming Sheila. And if one day you find a bike lock flying through your windshield when you cut off the guy on the bike then don’t be surprised, shocked, or feel like a victim. You deserve it.
