When was the last time a cyclist actually came to a stop sign and dismounted? Never seen it! Just an hour ago I was looking out of the window and a lady on a bike no helmet blew through the stop sign and went into a city f350, she fell so hard

And let me guess, she bitched him out for getting in her way and making her crash.

They're pretty much saying "we're already doing this so make it legal".

If that goes thru, I'd like to see lane filtering made legal for motorcycles.

doenst make sense that cyclists use the road same as cars, but requires no knowledge of road laws?

stop sign means stop for 2 seconds then proceed when safe, not blow through and have a spaz when you almost get creamed by a car.

bike riders need mandatory drivers ed IMO. also appropriate fines for fucking up, just like car drivers. everyone on level play field.

I love to ride my bike once in awhile, but this is bullshit. If you are driving on the same surface you use the same fucking rules, The way it has been for years. Only time i get close calls are when people try to rush past me to turn into a parking lot . They blow out of a side ally and stop on the sidewalk or they turn through a light while i have the walk sign lit up

As a cyclist, I don't believe in this proposal nor do I agree with this advocacy group. Rules of the road should apply to everyone alike - cars, pedestrians, motorcycles/scooters, and cyclists.

Stopping for a mere 2 seconds could mean getting to your destination safe and sound or a ride in an ambulance or even 6 feet under. This nonsense about losing balance is retarded. This advocacy group needs to go away.

If you cant keep your balance then you cant ride and are an endangerment to yourself and those around you, stay the fuck off the road. It is same as if you cant drive a car, Dont do it.. stuff might happen.

These people that are for this are damn hopeless

They should focus on improving the painted lines for bike lanes or making them more luminated during dark/rainy weather.

There are way too many dangerous drivers + cars on the road. With our rainy and dark conditions, this plan will not work well and will def cause more cyclist + motor accidents.

I ride my bike all the time in the summer, i would say "losing balance" is just an excuse for those bikers that are too lazy to stop and have to re-accelerate.

i wouldn't even if they did get insurance.. what i want is filtering. all of europe allows filtering, and if you want a north american example, california allows filtering.

I'm surprised Revscene doesn't support this idea, since so many are already of this mindset:

"We're already doing 30 over the limit through construction zones, so make it legal."
"We're already running HIDs in our otherwise-stock '84 Corollas, so make it legal."
"We're already running test pipes on our daily drivers, so make it legal."

Spoiler!

Who actually stops for stop signs on a bike? When I was a kid I would blow through those. If I got a ticket I'd be laughing all the way to court.

Sorry. Perhaps people like myself, 604CEFIRO, Alphamale, and OTG-ZR2 should have adopted that mentality when we went our group ride out to UBC and Stanley Park. Sadly, the hipsters on their fixies we rode beside along W. 10th stopped at a stop sign too. Shame on all of us.

Fuck stop signs. Yeah.

If cyclists want to use the road with cars...They better abide by the same rules that cars do. No exceptions. Cyclists are already hard enough to deal with, suddenly cutting up front beside you on a red light and ALREADY blowing past intersections.

" driving advocates call for "rolling stop" at intersection because doing a full stop consumes more gas and creates more air pollution "

Speaking from a motorcycling filtering perspective, if you stay in the middle of your lane, not hugging one side or the other, your mirrors will be fine
