KrispyKritter: filter: Nothing amusing about getting doored-- it can be quite deadly.


Next time ya'll are biatching about cyclists taking the lane, you might consider how dangerous it is to ride in the door zone (death zone).

So fark you all very much--- my popcorn is ready.

roads are for licensed insured motor vehicles. go ride your bike with the other kiddies on the playground.


The law disagrees.

Oh great, another incompetent motorist who doesn't know the rules of the road. Just what my commute needs.

o great, another incompetent & entitled cyclist who can't use common sense. just what my commute needs

You know what, I am entitled. Legally entitled to use the road. And unless you're one of those rare drivers who actually stop at stop signs and signal their turns, I'm a more considerate road user than you are. Please, just stop driving before you kill someone.

This is all true but you are in a lot more danger and should keep that in mind. Pissing drivers off will get you seriously injured.

If a driver gets pissed off because I'm safely and legally using the road, then that's their problem. I refuse to let the incompetence of others define what I do.

If they want to try to take it out on me? Then that's what criminal and civil courts are for.


Funny, you didn't respond to my riding double post. It's illegal in my neck of the woods but most, if not all, cyclist ignore it.

I would farking love to see the cops actual enforce that one.


Because you totally moved the goalposts when everyone pointed out you were wrong.

We aren't nice, we're polite. It's different.

No the Canadians in their 20s aren't, the ones pissed me off the most while in Europe were Canadians and little Asian people who never grasped the concept of not blocking sidewalks or hallways. The Canadians were rude and crass on our train to Amsterdam that almost led to an altercation when they were making suggestive comments about my GF. Not to mention one of the train personnel had to tell them to watch their language after they moved to seats in an area with children.


Unfortunately the Asians do that everywhere, and not just in Europe.

It's kinda like they say about Americans and Brits. It's perfectly possible for an American to be rude accidentally, but a Brit is only rude when he means to be. Check out the Canadian war record in WW1, WW2 and Korea and you'll find that while on the outside we're a bunch of smiling nerds, that's just generations of repression and inferiority complexes waiting for an excuse to go all Smokey Smith on somebody's ask. (Go ahead and check with the Taliban who, besides the Ghurkas, they really hate to deal with in Afghanistan.)

Last time I drove a car, which was yesterday, the roads were clogged with motorized vehicles- not cyclists. They were everywhere, slowing me down. Other drivers are the bane of my driving existence, not bicyclists. Just look at any freeway-- where cyclists are almost universally banned. Are bikes creating the traffic jams?

It is a rare event when a cyclist 'slows me down' relative to the 100s if not 1000s of other cars and trucks slowing me down. Funny how small minded people are so fixated on the outliers (cyclists) that they cannot see the real issue--- traffic problems for motorists are comprised of their own kind.

For those bullies advocating violence toward cyclists, it is no laughing matter- there are some real psychos out there (cyclists and motorists alike). I was on a quiet traffic-free street commuting to work at 6:30am, and a motorist deliberately tried to run me off the road (he started to pass me, but then tried running me into the curb). I jotted down his plates, but gave him a pass. A few weeks later he did it again in a different vehicle, and I had words with him, at which point he threatened to kill me if he saw me on the road again. Police were not interested in this matter, so I posted his plates on Craigslist, and some DMV employee gave me all sorts of information, including criminal history and legal judgments against him. Since the police would not help, I took matters into my own hands, knowing where he lived, worked, and what he drove. Sometimes karma gets a little help.

As I said, you never mentioned side by side cycling in your initial post, then when called on it you try to make that the issue. I don't know where your neck of the woods is, but where I live there are a lot of cyclists and 90+% of them are by themselves going to and from work or errands or whatever, they aren't lycra kitted douches riding road bikes side by side. You're just wrong.

Impede traffic???


Where in hell do you live? There is no law against impeding traffic in most jurisdictions. In fact, traffic itself usually impedes traffic.

Real cities usually have trucks double parked, horses pulling silly tourists, hipsters on underpowered scooters, buses moving unpredictably, and taxis driving like maniacs chasing down fares.

lolwut?
impeding traffic in oregon

granted, douche bag cyclists will cling to para. 2 - but that is up to some interpretation.

riding on major streets with no bike lane or shoulder at 7mph with a line of cars behind is impeding traffic IMHO - i'd welcome any explanation otherwise.

this is also especially frustrating in my town as it goes far out of its way to invest infrastructure $$ on bike lanes / bike boulevards (painting little bikes on a street to designate it's where bikes should be riding) that parallel the busiest streets, yet so few actually use them.
no, they'd rather be on parade making an ass of themselves and getting in the way.

If there's no bike lane, bicyclists are in their rights to take whatever spot they want in the lane. If there is a bike lane, though, use it. Oh, and stop running stop signs, going down the street the wrong way, and riding on the sidewalk.

I am super glad that I live in a place where people actually stop at stop signs and signal their turns. Well, at least in cars.

I've never seen anyone on a bike do the former and rarely do the latter. I've certainly seen plenty of them run into pedestrians while riding on the sidewalk, dash out across a cross-walk and expect me to slam on my brakes, cut through traffic, drive the wrong way down one-way roads, and blitz through red lights even when there's on-coming traffic.

So fark you all very much--- my popcorn is ready.

roads are for licensed insured motor vehicles. go ride your bike with the other kiddies on the playground.

Oh great, another incompetent motorist who doesn't know the rules of the road. Just what my commute needs.

o great, another incompetent & entitled cyclist who can't use common sense. just what my commute needs

You know what, I am entitled. Legally entitled to use the road. And unless you're one of those rare drivers who actually stop at stop signs and signal their turns, I'm a more considerate road user than you are. Please, just stop driving before you kill someone.

once you are done jacking yourself off, perhaps you'll realize how myopic you are.
however, that would require you to pull your head from out your ass, so i'm not very hopeful.

/you may be entitled to use the road, but you are not entitled to impede traffic. and unless you are one of the five cyclists on earth that can stop and start at lights and stop signs (i'll forgo you signaling, that is just too much to ask ain't it?) then you are just another jackwad douche out to do nothing more than be a pain in the ass of everyone else.

//please, just stop riding before someone kills you & has to have a moment of grief before continuing on with their life.

Impede traffic???


Where in hell do you live? There is no law against impeding traffic in most jurisdictions. In fact, traffic itself usually impedes traffic.

Real cities usually have trucks double parked, horses pulling silly tourists, hipsters on underpowered scooters, buses moving unpredictably, and taxis driving like maniacs chasing down fares.

Looks like normal operation of a bicycle doesn't count as impeding traffic:

(2) A person is not in violation of the offense described under this section if the person is proceeding in a manner needed for safe operation.

I am super glad that I live in a place where people actually stop at stop signs and signal their turns. Well, at least in cars.

I've never seen anyone on a bike do the former and rarely do the latter. I've certainly seen plenty of them run into pedestrians while riding on the sidewalk, dash out across a cross-walk and expect me to slam on my brakes, cut through traffic, drive the wrong way down one-way roads, and blitz through red lights even when there's on-coming traffic.


I would love to live in this utopia. However, in San Francisco the drivers are far worse than the cyclists they decry. Drivers blow through stop signs and stop lights, including speeding around other drivers who do stop at stop signs or cross-walks. They speed, they don't signal their turns, they drive on the sidewalk, basically everything that drivers biatch about cyclists doing, I see drivers do every day here, and unfortunately, driving 2 tons of steel and glass is a greater responsibility than 20 pounds of aluminum. Well more than half the drivers here need to have their licenses revoked.

You can assert anything you like, however if you cannot safely share the road with slower traffic, you are not competent enough to operate a motor-vehicle, and that's not just my contention, that's the law.

nice try but no

how bout: you are such a selfish prick that you feel that riding in traffic with no bike lane nor shoulder causing motorists to risk head on collisions to avoid your slow ass is somehow "safe". or in lieu of passing your slow and pretentious self, you feel that holding up traffic for miles is somehow a great way to run a city.

you are similar to the tea party people that like to carry their guns at rallies. sure, it's your right. but is it such a good idea? not so much.

sad when common sense takes a back seat.

You're in too much of a hurry to pass slower traffic that you would threaten not only traffic in your lane, but on-coming traffic as well? You really really should not be driving.

Guess what, the road is not your personal speedway, sometimes you have to slow down for other traffic and wait until it's safe to pass.

you are a gem
that you say this with no sense of irony is sickeningly beautiful

is difficult to understand how you can ride with your head so far up your ass, but hey.. good jorb!!

& wanting to go the speed limit =/= being in a hurry - sorry to break that to you. i'd be as irritated with someone who just 'didn't feel safe' driving more than 15mph -

if you can't do the minimum posted speed - you have no business on the street.

Seeing as you've already proven that you have no idea what the rules of the road are, I'll explain.

The speed limit posted on those signs you see? That's the upper limit, as in, you are not allowed to drive faster than that speed. If conditions or your vehicle prevent it, you are legally allowed (or in some instances required) to travel at a speed lower than the posted limit. Aside from limited access highways, which cyclists aren't allowed to ride on anyway, there is no such thing as a minimum posted speed.

As I said, you never mentioned side by side cycling in your initial post, then when called on it you try to make that the issue. I don't know where your neck of the woods is, but where I live there are a lot of cyclists and 90+% of them are by themselves going to and from work or errands or whatever, they aren't lycra kitted douches riding road bikes side by side. You're just wrong.


I will give you that one, I failed to mention it.

That being said, the people that do that are still dicks. My neck of the woods is Boulder, CO. We just had a major race here. The street I live on I see cyclists go by every few minutes, have a few pros that live about a block from me (and jesus do they make a hell of a lot of money even before the endorsements). I have no issues with cyclist that obey the laws, but the ones that ignore them annoy the crap out of me due to the fact that they are not only putting themselves at risk, but my future as well because they want to chat with a buddy.

How are they putting your future are risk? Are you also saying that you are being "forced" to drive dangerously into head on traffic because of these cyclists? Guess what, them being douches doesn't make it okay for you to drive dangerously.

Interesting that now you say you have no issues with cyclists who obey the laws, for a while there you were smearing all cyclists and defending it because of the side by side douches where you live.

[sigh] I think you might be misunderstanding the point I am making. Driving dangerously? No. But causing major slow down issues on the road due to them, yes. What gives them the right to slow down multiple vehicles because they want to talk?

As to putting my future at risk, what happens if I attempt to go around them, possibly clipping one, or going head on into another vehicle? As I said, I have no issue with cyclist that obey the law. I also sited a well known cyclist on this site that can back me up on it. It's the assholes who ignore it and endanger others that I have a problem with.

If you don't understand that.. Well, I guess we are at an impasse. The laws are there for a reason. Regardless of riding a bike or driving a car.

If you are going to clip one of them or go head on into another vehicle then you are driving dangerously. Would you pass a car/motorcycle/scooter if you were going to head on another car or clip the scooter? Why do motorists think it is okay to drive dangerously because it is a bicycle slowing them down instead of another motorized vehicle?

I take it you have never been stuck behind a large group of cyclist? And yea, you can call this moving the goal posts:

Last year I was stuck behind a pack of about 30 or so on a mountain road trying to come down. If you want, I can provide a google maps location for you. Please tell me how the hell I can safely pass them when they are doing 15 in a 30 zone on a single lane highway.
