I'm sick and tired of being held responsible for the actions of others simply because I drive a car and don't drive a motorcycle nor rely on a bicycle for transportation (though the bike thing is a different kind of rant).
Drivers of cars are always told to watch out for motorcycles and I do and I respect them, but there's a few jackasses out there who make me wonder why I should bother. Case in point: I was merging onto the I-10 Saturday afternoon on my way to work when I see a motorcyclist in the far left lane doing a ******* WHEELIE at 60+ mph. I wish I had called 9-1-1 to report his ass because people like him make me wonder why I should bother giving a damn about a motorcyclist. All in all I think those who ride Harleys are wayyyyyy more responsible and they have my utmost respect.
Bicyclists on the other hand, I want to complain about as a pedestrian. When you're on a bike and riding around the city, you are supposed to obey the rules of the road as if you are in a vehicle. Yet (again on Saturday) as I was walking to work the other day, a whole stream of cyclists came riding around a street corner that is a 'no turn on red' traffic signaled stop. As far as I'm concerned, every last one of them broke the law preventing me from crossing with the crossing signal. They get all b****y when cars are parked in the bike lane along side the theatre. They want their lanes, but don't want to follow the rules of the road.
