Great idea. Now let's get them licensed , get the riders tested for a basic skill level, and charge a tax for them to use the roads that gasoline taxes have provided. Let's also remind them that now that the riders have to give them 4 feet, they also have to give the motorist 4 feet. Also remind them that automobiles are not sitting in traffic for them to rest against so they don't have to put those stupid shoes on the ground.

Naw. just saying that the cyclists need to have rules just like the motorists. In this age of spreading it around, you just know that those two wheel pedalers want the same type of regulation, especially since they pay no tax to use the roads and have special trails and bike ways and who knows what else. With Obama gasoline heading toward $5.00 there's gonna' be many more cyclists on the road.

Actually, many cyclists behave more like children then adults, and I have no problem with licensing bikes for use on roads. But you,re an idiot if you believe Obsma can impact pricing on a globally traded commodity, old man; the man has increased domestic drilling and production to historic levels, so your assertion is utterly baseless. Try to keep it real, ya' ol' fool!

Well now, you've gottta' admit, even with a Progressive Obot mindset, that the price of gasoline has doubled under Obama. Current trends indicate a much higher price, especially when summer comes and the EPA forces us to use the formula that they dictate. Giving Chrysler to the Italians and establishing government motors hasn't helped much, but it's definitely global in nature.

I would like to see these cyclists obey the same laws that motorists do, and pay something to use the roads. This includes those "messengers" as well as the commuters.

Well, it's obvious now that the other guy calling you out all the time as an evil little troll is clearly correct!
