I am a vehicular cyclist. I obey traffic laws. I stop at STOP signs, red STOP lights and use caution when the light is yellow.
I shot this video on Saturday, last weekend. I am not going to call anyone out in the video, but you can hopefully appreciate my sentiment.
It is my opinion that everyone should follow traffic laws. Cyclists are not exempt. Not obeying traffic laws can cause accidents to a cyclist, which can be very expensive. Plus, you are breaking the law if you don't follow traffic laws.
It worries me to see people running red lights and not stopping at STOP signs, intentionally.
There are certain exceptions, such as a defective traffic light, when one might use caution and cross the road, even if the light is red. But that is not what I am talking about when I talk about breaking traffic laws.
