     I think it’s a matter of car drivers far outnumber cyclists in the lawmaking and justice systems.  They fear being “harshly” penalized for a moment of inattention.  The worst part is that even drunk drivers get off easy.

    That anyone would mention cyclists running stop signs as a major safety concern is a sign of ignorance and envy.  It is a well known fact that the majority of cyclists roll thru stop signs, yet we rarely see collisions caused by that behavior.  People who don’t ride a bike can’t fathom that fact.  Bikes are not the same as cars.  They may be classified as the same under the laws of most states, but the fact is they are very different.
