But you canâ€™t go to the same intersection and see cars roll it when around no one else then tell cyclists to come to a complete stop.
So Iâ€™m more in line of simply riding as smart as possible. Iâ€™m not going to suggest to blantantly roll a stop sign when an intersection is filled with traffic. But if you roll up to an empty intersection at 6mph and roll through it, I donâ€™t really see the outrage.
Same way we drive 7 mph over the speed limit but if we see someone driving 25 mph over we usually think they are in the wrong.
So I think awareness matters a ton in the â€śreal worldâ€ť. But should we all follow the â€ślawsâ€ť 100% of time? The easy answer is to say yes. I just also see/know how the real world works.
So if we have to be held to a higher standard donâ€™t give me shit if your a driver not holding the same standard.
