    Angry Be Careful Out There

    Clowns like this give cyclists a bad name. Looks like a lot of the 'cyclists' I've seen over the years that ride wherever they want w/ no regard to traffic laws or personal safety. Pretty sure he isn't wearing a helmet.

    As the rednecks say, "You can't fix stupid".

    He's lucky all he got was charged & not an extended stay in a hospital bed, comatose.

    I've lived in Ottawa, and the cyclists that pissed me off the most were the Messengers. Absolutely no regard for safety, rules of the road, especially red lights. They really give cyclists a bad name.

    I lived in Oshawa most of my life & have been a regular visitor to Toronto as a motorist, pedestrian & a cyclist (on the Waterfront Trail & the cycling trail network). The messengers are no different there as well. Weaving thru stopped vehicles to get ahead of traffic.
