The government should do more to target "irresponsible behaviour" by cyclists - particularly when they break traffic laws, a committee of MPs has said.
Good. It's about time they stopped being deified by the media, which only adds to their arrogance and belief that "the rules do not apply to them". I'd like to take this opportunity to remind cyclists that the rules very much apply to you. That includes stopping at fucking red lights as well, something the BBC article neglects to mention.
The thing is, if when confronted about cycling through red lights, or on the pavement, cyclists were even the slightest fucking bit humble, and admitted that they knew it was wrong, and they were very sorry, but sometimes it's just easier and they do it if it's safe to do so. However, most I've come across do not do this - in fact, almost the opposite - they believe they have a god-given right to ignore red lights and cycle on the pavement, because their smugcycle is not fitted with an engine. They make no apology for the fact that they completely flout rules on the road on an hourly basis and even have the outright fucking temerity to get indignant when drivers don't show them the utmost courtesy even though they're not prepared to do the same (such as actually stopping at red lights, or pulling into the side of the road when it's safe to do to allow traffic to pass, or actually looking before they wobble out from a side street straight into traffic).
I've taken a personal resolution that the next arse who "buzzes" me whilst twatting through the pedestrianised area in Broadmead as fast as they can on their stupid fucking bike is going to get pushed off it.
