I can’t believe how inconsiderate people can be when they are on a bicycle. They impede traffic by riding on the road and have no respect for cars! When I was growing up we were taught to move to the far right of the shoulder when a car was approaching from behind. Why??? because it was bigger than you and could KILL you. It had nothing to do with who had the right of way or if you were allowed to be on the pavement. It had all to do with self preservation. Now it’s like people don’t care. They will ride on the pavement with cars, trucks and semis driving past them. Unbelievable…..
Then we spent all of this money on bicycle paths, and they still ride on the road. WTF??? Why are they doing that?? Why aren’t they given tickets when a bike path is available and they choose NOT to use it????
If a farmer drives a tractor on the road they must have a slow moving vehicle sign. Now anybody can see a big ole tractor, yet they must have a sign, and I bet they are supposed to move over as soon as possible to allow traffic to pass. Bikes aren’t required to have a sign, a flag or anything, yet they are very hard to see, and they won’t move over to let traffic to pass. It’s unbelievable how rude people can be anymore. Its all part of the “Big Box Store Generation”….. More on that topic later.
Till next time remember…..
