ZAZ: If they are legally vehicles, does running one over count as vandalism rather than assault?
Ikam: Given some of the road conditions in Chicago, I predict a lot of inline skaters falling flat on their faces and getting run over by a city bus or a taxi driver when they hit one of the several million potholes that exist on our roads.
Fark_Guy_Rob: All of the same 'bicycle vs car' arguments hold up for 'skaters vs bicycles'. The only difference is the smug cyclists are the ones who are going to be annoyed.For all the 'share the road' stuff they throw around, the second you go into their 'bicycle lane' you'd damn better be on a bicycle or they'll eat you alive.
Tanukis_Parachute: january 1 and already had a run in with a cyclist that thought the stop sign was a 'suggestion'.four way stop...i got there first. start to go and a biker blows thru from my right and starts yelling at me for having the audacity to slow him down.he yelled at me that he was in 'training'. i guess it is training to be dead quicker.

Petit_Merdeux: If only cyclists observed all the traffic laws as diligently as motorists!
thornhill: This is all an enforcement issue. If people believe laws are enforced, they don't break them.Nobody driving a car runs a red or stop sign even if there is clearly no other car in the area because they know if the police catch them, there are going to be serious repercussions.Cyclists never get pulled over and ticketed for breaking traffic laws; they conclude the laws are never enforced; and thus, don't think twice about breaking them.Cities need to start putting traffic cops on corners and ticketing bicyclists.
