    We need weekly news stories EXPLAINING motor vehicle laws to those on bikes. For some reason, people riding bikes in center city THINK THEY CAN DO ANYTHING and the hheell with safety. HERE IS THE PROBLEM: those on bikes who tangle with cars or trucks, hook up with the Ambulance chasing crooked lawyers and sue the car owner, collecting medical benefits and financial damages. WARNING: if you hit someone on a bike, get a dozen witnesses or you are dead against the unethical lawyers.

    she was on a bike…leave her alone…worst she will do is hurt herself, then she deserves it

    1. No Double Standard For Bikes says:

      A friend of mine was killed by someone being reckless on a bicycle (who never stopped to see if he was OK & the person was never caught). So, that’s NOT the worst this idiot biker could’ve done. I’m glad she got busted. Bikes want to share the road; they need to be responsible & follow the rules, too.
