@Musuko42, lol. Yorkshire, I'll give you that it's not the south, but if you're from Sheffield then I understand the hills. I can't agree that all should be treated equal on the roads, after all not all on the road now are treated equal, HGV are limited etc. @MeGrendel yeah, come'on bike were not around during the Roman times, my point was road were built for other reasons too and that roads would be better than dirt tracks even without cars (I would have a guess that that track is ok for a Mtn bike.. On the point of insurance, I'll agree on that front, but that doesn't mean the law should be against you. Can we ban horses too?

Seriously...the bike lanes are there for a purpose. If there's an obstruction, you move out of the lane to avoid the obstruction, and back into the lane once the obstruction is cleared.
Let's see...how about I drive my car on the wrong side of the road just because sometimes there's obstructions in my lane.

And again, this is a case of the police officers not being paid to interpret the law, they're paid to enforce the law...hence why they're called law ENFORCEMENT officers. If the law needs interpretation, seek legal counsel.

By paying for a fine, you're automatically admitting guilt. You can't admit guilt, then later change to not-guilty.

Woden! I hate self-righteous people.

PS: I live in Yorkshire. Many hills! You have to be a special kind of hardcore to ride a bicycle here. I'm too much of a sappy weakling to do so.

Also I'm 14 miles from my place of work.

I have no issues with bicyclists, though. As a motorcyclist myself, I respect them and their risky position out on the roads.

I would respect them more, however, if they were licence-plated (accountable) and licenced (trained and tested) and insured (responsible).

@jsatan

"So what you're saying is all of these should come first...are for which "rights" on the road?"

To be treated, by law, as equal users of the road: expected to follow the rules of the road, but also afforded all the rights and protections that other road users have (such as claiming against the third party's insurance if they're hit in an accident).

"But really there's a big difference between a bicycle crashing and a car or even a motorbike"

Not as big as you might think. In a collision with a pedestrian or motorcyclist, a bicycle can cause serious harm. And even with cars and lorries, a bicycle can still cause collisions between other vehicles.

I grant you that it's uncommon, so the insurance rates would reflect that by being very low.

I conceed that road tax would be zero for bicycles.

zeegrr-"It's sad when cops don't know the law."

The cop knew the law, and that the cyclist was breaking it, so he gave him a ticket.

"It's sadder when idiots pay illegal fines."

The idiot knew that the fine was not illegal, that's why he paid it.

He then went on to make as a$$ of himself on video.

If something's in your way, you stop. In the case of a cyclist, the best thing to do is to dismount the bike and walk it around the obstruction. That is the LEGAL thing to do.

But this self-ritious git is 'better than thou' and also 'saving the planet', so he's too good for that.

Now, in the case of a motorist. If there is an obstruction in the road does he: 1) Slam into it like this idiot? 2) Drive over the sidewalk going around it? or 3) STOP, and consider his options?

Now, for a motorist, any option other than #3 would get you a ticket and/or arrested.

So it should be for the cyclis

Ah yes, the famous Roman Roads. While some were nice, most were:




Feel free to ride your bike on that.

I'd rather have the nice interstate designed for my intenrnal combustion engine driven truck.

Don't be a douche. Stay in the bike lane unless there's an obstruction. Then move out of it, ride past, then get back in.
And if something is in your way...stop.

@MeGrendel I'm not "having a go" but do you think if a cars were not around and everyone used bikes that there would only be dirt tracks? You do not think that the same "evolution" of the road would continue? After all asphalt was being laid as soon as it was found, before the motorcar, cobble roads? Hey even tow paths near cannals. It's a myth that road would only be around for card, motorways yes, but road in general no, they would be around, ask the Romans, :D

kairobert-"The thing is, you are a retard for driving a car when you could ride a bike."

And the thing is, you are an a$$wipe for, well, just being an a$$wipe.


"If you were to drive on the sidewalk, other people would get hurt."

You're not supposed to ride there.

"If you ride on the road, you could get hurt."

Your choice for sharing the road with multi-ton vehicles.

"Traffic laws are suited to anuses like you."

Traffic laws were written for automobiles, just as the highways were constructed for them. Had we stopped at bikes, you'd be riding along a dirt track.

"New traffic laws are in order,"

No, just less self-righteous, pretentious a$$wipes on bikes.

"restricting the movement of personal-use cars."

Tough cookies. Tilt at windmills all you want, you're not going to stop the personal car. You just like the idea of invokin

Yeah, because when I live out in the middle of nowhere, seven miles from the nearest anything, let alone my job, it makes perfect sense for me to ride a bike everywhere.

Because I don't have things to do at certain times, a preference for smelling relatively nice when I get to my destination, I don't burn like hell under the sun, etc.

Enjoy being a pretentious European prick while you live in some city where everything you'll ever need is within walking distance.

I'd like to see you keep your attitude when you move to the middle of American nowhere.

@Musuko42: So what you're saying is all of these should come first (licence plates, paying road tax, having front and back lights and turn signals, having annual safety checks (MOT), having to wear a helmet ) are for which "rights" on the road?
Turning signals, someone's arms are too hard to see? As for light, yes I agree they must be seen at night. But really there's a big difference between a bicycle crashing and a car or even a motorbike, I do know human power can reach 86mph but that's not on every road. I can only assume you live in either the south or a built up area (a city?). I can see the reasoning for road tax, but really bike can make their own way well without roads, come to think about it I think roads would be 1/2 the width and nothing more than a thin layer of hardcore, after all they're very light. Maybe have a look at where local road funding comes from, it's not road TAX it's vehicle excise duty and is based on emissions, bikes have ZERO! :)

As far as the test, in the UK there is a thing called the Cycle Proficiency test: non-mandatory training and test you can do to be safe on the roads.

I suggest it become mandatory, bikes become licenced, fitted with lights and signals, taxed, tested and insured.

In exchange, bicycles are treated as regular road users, afforded all the rights and restrictions (no running reds!) as such.

THEN they will deserve the respect on the roads they are asking for.

This site has a good run through of what is in the motorcycle MOT. Much of this can apply to bicycles.

@jfishx

"Bicycles tend to get bought and sold really quickly, making registering them a nightmare."

This is no argument. Cars and motorcycles get bought and sold reasonably frequently and painlessly too.

"Also, where would you put a license plate on a bike?"

At the back, just under the seat, or on a mount on the rear mud guard. Similar positioning to motorcycles. There's plenty of space.

"And as for road taxes, any taxes received from cyclists should be negligible"

Agreed.

Incidentally, I missed out one thing they should have like any other road users: INSURANCE.

"I don't know what kind of safety checks you could possibly have on a bike, there simply isn't anything there to check other than "do my brakes work?""

Brakes, lights, tyres, wheels, steering, suspension. Basically, the same things that happen in a motorcycle MOT in the UK.

killed or hospitalized, you pass. There is no room for error in cycling, at least not while cycling in a busy city.

@ Musuko42

License plates are unreasonable for bicycles. Bicycles tend to get bought and sold really quickly, making registering them a nightmare. Also, where would you put a license plate on a bike? There really is no space. Some colleges use stickers that you can register with the police, but it's really only a way to return the bike in case an idiot steals it, and it's a free service.

And as for road taxes, any taxes received from cyclists should be negligible, since we barely put any wear or tear on the road - we are simply not heavy enough to do the same amount of damage cars do and should be taxed accordingly.

I don't know what kind of safety checks you could possibly have on a bike, there simply isn't anything there to check other than "do my brakes work?"

I agree to a certain degree with your statement that a written test should be passed, but as for a practical, every time you ride you take a practical exam. If you haven't been ki
