  4. I try to get as close as I can when I drive by them. I also block their path at stop signs and stop lights. So many occasions where they ride two or three deep taking up the entire road.

    1. I purposely act dangerously in my half-ton of speeding metal, because I’m annoyed. I am a rational adult, and my opinion is worthy of consideration.

  5. Thank God they passed a law.
    All problems are solved now.

  6. This is just amazing, just like the idiot who came up with the green painted bike lane under the train trestle. remarkable you are . What would the world do without you. You must ride your bicycle without a seat.

  7. Just more “laws” to fine and ticket the public. The state always wins (at robbing you)
