Jon Geeting on Eliminating full stops for Cyclists

Making a twenty pound bicycle obey the exact same road rules as a two ton piece of machinery, a.k.a. an automobile is ridiculous.  No one in their right mind would set down to draft the same set of road laws for both bicycles and cars.  And, yet, through, habituation people have come to expect bikes to follow the same rules.  The result is that when bicyclists "break" the law safely (or for their own safety) they are criticized by yahoo motorists who think a violation of a ridiculous crime ought to carry moral approbation.  Stupid.  Jon Geeting has more on legalizing the rolling stop for bicyclists at this old city.
