  1. Bicyclists are almost always the ones at fault when there’s a collision with a motor vehicle. They want to ride in heavy traffic lanes like cars but they want to be exempt from the same rules of the road that cars and trucks have to follow. Be dumb and eventually you go down, get hurt. It’s hard to feel sorry for them when it happens. I speak as a cyclist myself as well as a motorist. They really don’t belong on the main roads.
