Crosswalks aren't for cyclists

Posted on Thu, Jul 19, 2012 at 12:34 PM

Why can't you get off your bike and walk it across the street if you feel you have to ride them on the sidewalks with pedestrians? Especially you parents who tow your kids in trailers behind your bikes.. Seriously, it's bad enough when a lone person on a bike darts off the sidewalk onto a crosswalk, but that's your kid you're pulling into harms way. Basically, I don't want to maim or kill you or your child. You're breaking the law. Cars don't stop on dimes. I don't want your stupid decision, or your ignorance, to weigh on my mind for the rest of my life. You don't see pedestrians walking in the middle of the street, or cars up on the sidewalk with pedestrians, why do you think your bicycles belong wherever you can put them? I hope the cops crack down on you but they won't so smarten up or sooner or later you'll get hit in a crosswalk. —Driver
