I was reminded today by a family member that bikes need to follow all the rules of the road that cars do (becuase we have all the same rights that cars do).
I was asked whether I would drive through a stop sign in my car if no one was around. I would not. "So, why would you do that on your bike?" was the question posed to me. A very good question indeed.
It is very understandable that cars get irritated at bikes that roll on through stop signs and stop lights.
We cyclists need to make a good impression out there and follow the rules of the road.
