(Livingston Daily)   To the three cyclists in Michigan that actually signal turns: you will now be allowed to use your right arm for right turns. For the rest, keep running red lights, stop signs and going the wrong way on one-way streets, as usual   (livingstondaily.com) divider line 116

Good.

I hate signalling right turns.  It looks like I'm waving.

I had always assumed this was already acceptable.  It's the way I was taught to signal a right turn on a bike.

Maybe the submitter blames cyclists for the collapse of the auto industry in Michigan because, if they had bought cars, none of that would have happened.

Nothing makes me happier than the impotent rage of drivers who can't just run roughshod over every person and thing in their way with their gasoline-powered movement machines. I think the next time I run a stop sign I'm gonna do a little victory waggle with my butt at the fat slobs idling their way toward a stop. Guess what? If I go on a rampage with my bike I might break someone's arm or leg but I can't do that much damage before running out of steam and, besides, someone's gonna cold-cock me before things get too out of hand. Drivers, well, we have to restrain them through strictly-enforced laws because they could run over a herd of grandmothers before even noticing their iPad had been jostled out of their hands.

Sucks to be you, drivers. Sucks to be you.

I got so close to one yesterday that he had to shiat his pants.  You should not be blocking traffic if you are not going the speed limit.  You are on a bike and I will always win if there is a crash.
 
2013-10-02 04:42:29 PM
How about going the wrong way in a bike lane?  There are arrows in the lane for a reason.  Driving towards a car adds the speed of both colliding objects together and if you think you're going to be more likely to survive the crash I've got some great farmland to sell you in the middle of the Mojave.

Some jurisdictions allow bicycles to go the opposite way down one-way streets.

Funny, the law says the cyclist is allowed to be on the road regardless of your road rage. I thought you were all concerned about the law? If the cyclist has to stop for stop signs you have to yield the road to another lawful vehicle. Sorry if that makes you angry.

If you can't go the speed limit then you shouldn't be blocking the road.   I will continue to get as close as possible and make them rethink their stupid plan.  Who wins if there is a crash is all that matters.

That is exactly what happened to me.  I was approaching an intersection and a cop was waiting on the other side so I though, "hmmm, I better signal my right turn else the cop will be a dick and give me a ticket".  I Put my left hand up at a right angle to signal the turn and the cop waved back.  After that I figured if it was possible for a cop not to recognize the hand signal for a right turn then it was pretty likely that a normal motorist wouldn't either.  After that, the one time a week when I would signal a right turn, I just stuck my right arm out.

Duty of Bicycle Operator: Operation On Roadway. VC 21202
a) Any person operating a bicycle upon a roadway at a speed less than the normal speed of traffic moving in the same direction at such time shall ride as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway except under any of the following situations:
When overtaking and passing another bicycle or motor vehicle proceeding in the same direction.
When preparing for a left turn at an intersection or into a private road or driveway.
When reasonably necessary to avoid conditions (including, but not limited to, fixed or moving objects, vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, animals, surface hazards, or substandard width lanes) that make it unsafe to continue along the right-hand curb or edge. For purposes of this section, a "substandard width lane" is a lane that is too narrow for a bicycle and a vehicle to travel safely side by side within the lane.
b) Any person operating a bicycle on a one-way street or highway with two or more marked traffic lanes, may ride as near the left-hand curb or edge of such roadway as practicable.



If the cyclists followed these rules I wouldn't have a problem.  But most don't.

While threatening someone with death (i.e. passing too close to them with your car) is unacceptable, impeding traffic is against the law.

If for some reason your vehicle can't go fast enough to keep up with traffic, you are expected to pull over and let traffic pass instead of letting a long line of cars build up behind you. Failing to do so is a moving violation.

If I'm not stopping (because it's legal to turn without stopping) I'll use my right arm.

theorellior: CynicalLA: The cyclists that decide to use the highway instead of the bike path are the ones that really piss me off. I hope you don't do that.

So, when you're on the highway you follow every traffic law and never speed, right? Because you're all law-abiding like that, right? I mean, fark the scofflaw cyclists, you're better than they are.


I may speed but I never impede traffic.  I'm always aware of my surroundings and go with the flow of traffic.  The laws I break don't affect any other drivers and that's the big difference. Do you understand?

I hate signalling right turns.  It looks like I'm waving.

That is exactly what happened to me.  I was approaching an intersection and a cop was waiting on the other side so I though, "hmmm, I better signal my right turn else the cop will be a dick and give me a ticket".  I Put my left hand up at a right angle to signal the turn and the cop waved back.  After that I figured if it was possible for a cop not to recognize the hand signal for a right turn then it was pretty likely that a normal motorist wouldn't either.  After that, the one time a week when I would signal a right turn, I just stuck my right arm out.

Heh-- This happened to a friend of mine.
How many drivers knbow what that signal means, anyway-- I just point.
me...that way... OK?


I actually had my taillights out for a while, so I did the hand signals, just as specified in drivers' ed.

I got a LOT of weird looks.

(I assume the right turn signal originated as the left arm out the window, pointing to the right over the roof.)

I rode a bike home from work daily for about 6 months, a 13 mile trip. I observed the rules, road on the shoulder when I could and did my best to avoid becoming road pizza. But... After being cursed at, hit between the shoulder blades with a half full can of Budweiser and several pairs of soiled shorts... I decided Physics wins in the end and bought the first car I could afford. Sure, bicycles have the same rights blah blah blah, but those rights do you no good when you're dead.

Most of you farktards that think they own the road just don't have the patience to be delayed 5 to 10 seconds on your journey. If there is no shoulder, even if there is a shoulder, cyclists are entitled to be in the travel lane. That's a fact. Just slow down for a second and go around. It's not difficult. If you see red every time you see someone on a bike and lump us all into the douchebag category, go fark yourself with a freaking porcupine.

Adjust your brake so that it won't lock up or at least won't unless you are torquing on it, most of your stopping power is in the front.

You want to be stopping with your front tire (primarily) since about 75% of your braking power is in the front wheel (weight transfer... it even matters on a 20 pound bike).  Getting in the habit of using the mostly the back is a quick way to skid through an intersection because you couldn't stop in time.

The front wheel (or wheels, if you're in a car) does have most of the stopping power, but if you couldn't stop before going through an intersection, you didn't think the situation through carefully enough.

I think the next time I run a stop sign I'm gonna do a little victory waggle with my butt at the fat slobs idling their way toward a stop. Guess what? If I go on a rampage with my bike I might break someone's arm or leg but I can't do that much damage before running out of steam and, besides, someone's gonna cold-cock me before things get too out of hand. Drivers, well, we have to restrain them through strictly-enforced laws because they could run over a herd of grandmothers before even noticing their iPad had been jostled out of their hands.

Sucks to be you, drivers. Sucks to be you.


Honestly, drivers should give bikers the same courtesy that bikers give pedestrians.  "On your right!" as you whiz up behind them. If they don't move, hit the little farker.  The world will not miss anyone on a bike. If they had any money, they'd be in a car.

And what you don't understand is that by speeding you are breaking the law.  Reckless driving kills more people than bicycling.  You're a menace to society.



Speeding =/= reckless driving. When the state lowered speeds to 55 mph, driving at 60 didn't suddenly change from 'safe' to 'reckless'.

Traffic moving at different speeds is what causes accidents, not speeding per se. This is why impeding traffic is against the law. This has been pointed out multiple times during the thread. These posts have been ignored by the bicyclists who claim that the law states that cars are supposed to wait or go around. The law actually states that slower-moving vehicles are supposed to pull over and let the faster-moving traffic go past. This applies to bicycles, slow cars, farm equipment*, or really anything that can't keep up with traffic.


*In some states, certain farm equipment needs to have special warning signs and isn't allowed to travel on public roads at night. This isn't because drivers hate farmers; it's because a slow-moving vehicle (even a large one) creates a hazard, especially at night.

theorellior: Funny, the law says the cyclist is allowed to be on the road regardless of your road rage. I thought you were all concerned about the law? If the cyclist has to stop for stop signs you have to yield the road to another lawful vehicle. Sorry if that makes you angry.


The moment the following happens, I'll consider bikes the equivalent to cars on the roads:

1. You pay taxes for the infrastructure necessary. Bike lane paint isn't free.
2. The police actually enforce laws on cyclists.
3. You are required to have insurance for your bike.
4. You are capable of traveling within 10 mph of the posted speed limit.
5. Those seizure inducing headlights are outlawed.

Without these five points, particularly #1, you are nothing but mooches on society.

1. Most of us own cars and pay taxes.
2. The police already do that.
3. Write to your state legislators.
4. That isn't a requirement of driving on a road unless a minimum speed limit is posted.
5. If people like you were capable of seeing us as humans riding a human-powered vehicle and didn't feel the need to murder us, we wouldn't need a wide array of flashing lights to get your attention.

The bicyclists in this thread keep saying this. That doesn't make it true. You're supposed to pull over and let people pass you if you can't keep up with the normal flow of traffic.
