Adding to the cyclist debate [With poll]

By Barcham - 19 March 2013 62

Loxmyf has sent us in this video of a cyclist turning around a corner at a dubious time.

Have a cyclist going through a red light. Coulter Drive and Southern Cross drive Monday 18 March 2013.

Time for another poll Rioters!

Is this cyclist doing the wrong thing?

I wonder why the silver Falcon stopped in the third one? Did he happen to get a kick in the door I wonder ………..

To be fair, in that last one the car/bikes can fly through that roundabout & if you misjudge the speed that can happen.

And in the first one the bus goes through on a red, surprise surprise.

So when I post videos of the hooligans doing burnouts in the school parking lot across the road from my place at 11pm every night, that will count against all car drivers, right?

Using the cyclist hatred mentality, this logic makes perfect sense.

Apparently the OP thinks there is a ‘cyclist argument’. Ok, then.

Not winning the motorist argument:

I could play this game all day…

Are we going to hold a poll regarding motorists every time one goes through a red light, or pedestrians if one is caught jaywalking?

Had a cracking good laugh at a couple of them 😀

How’s your luck when you’re driving the wrong way down a street… that the fuzz were about to turn into 😀

The cyclist is merely emulating the large number of quality motorists that go through blatant red lights on a regular basis.

Yes, they are doing the wrong thing and should be punished.

But don’t judge all cyclists by this moron.

The survey options show the creators prejudice against cyclists.

Oddly enough Johnboy and myself are both keen cyclists and created the poll so… maybe? We are fairly into self loathing.

I’m going to co-opt this thread to say thank you to the cyclist who considerately moved to the shoulder of the road on Alexandrina Drive so I could get past at lunchtime. There was no honking of horns or rude hand gestures, just plain old fashioned consideration.

Cheers!

perhaps rather than contributing to this mob-mentality generalisations of cyclists, we see this as one law breaker.

they drive cars too you know.

Until cyclists learn not to take the bait, I’m afraid these sorts of amusements will continue on Riotact!
