Yeah, that works really well with car and truck drivers...I support the bicycle addition but only if it is mostly applied to children who cannot drive anyway and result in bicycles having to take a driver's test and actually learn the damn road laws.
You can say that about car drivers as well, especially with parking infractions - at least here in Germany the fines are laughably low, even if you park right across the whole sidewalk or at corners where people with disabilities and mums/dads with strollers have no chance of getting onto the sidewalk again.I don't think problem with cyclists is the bicycles as much as the fact 90% of the time they face no consequences for ignoring all the road rules.
Funnily enough, that’s essentially what happened in my case. In elementary school, everyone was supposed (perhaps even required) to attend a few classes on road laws and rules and then take a sort of practical cycling test where volunteers would be watching and evaluating us kids at every corner. Just yesterday, I came across the fuck ugly “examined cyclist” pennant I was given for passing.I support the bicycle addition but only if it is mostly applied to children who cannot drive anyway and result in bicycles having to take a driver's test and actually learn the damn road laws.
