i bike every day and my head is on a swivel for someone running me down
I have nothing against bikers, pedestrians or others motorists - unless they think the rules of the road and all signs don't apply to them and then it's GAME ON!
The bikers here think stop signs apply to everyone but them when it comes to 4-way stops or anything less than a major intersection with actual street lights. Buddy of mine pulled out to make a right hand turn a few years ago and intersected with a stop sign running biker that hit the side of his car, made a nice dent, and FLEW over the hood. He must've been drinking Red Bull because he certainly had wings when he intersected my friends car. They took him away in an ambulance and I'll bet he had better respect for stop signs after that.
There's a 4-way stop close to my house that bikers always ignore and when I see them screaming down the sidewalk heading toward that intersection I tend to make real slow turns looking to get a new hood ornament of my own. :)
If I ever get a new car I'll (probably) stop that nonsense.
