I am glad to see someone is stepping up! I am sick and tired of the bicyclist thinking they rule the world. How many of them have to get hurt or killed before they realize they do not rule the road. I hope every last one of them get tickets against their license.

Ever since the media reported that the cops will be cracking down on stop-sign runners, I've truly noticed a lot more cyclists stopping at stop signs around town. i hope this continues and that people try to be aware of their surroundings. not to sound hippie, cos I'm not, but we all have to exist and get around safely.

Cyclists seem to forget that sharing the road means them too.

gee, that's an original thought. new material please!

i get annoyed when i see packs of roadies blowing through stop signs, that really paints a bad picture for law abiding cyclists. that being said, i was happy to see a dozen riders actually stop at the stop sign today.:)(i live at a stop sign and witness this stuff).
