Opinion: Shafted Again (Bike Snob NYC)

Bike Snob NYC mercilessly takes apart the argument that cyclists need to obey the road rules all the time to earn respect on the roads and justice if injured:

"It's impossible, and in fact downright stupid, to "obey the letter of the law" on your bicycle when you find yourself in a situation where the streets and the laws are designed specifically for cars, which describes most of the United States.  Moreover, it's gone way, way past the point where cyclists should need to prove to (that's drivers and police officers) that we "deserve respect."  We deserve respect for being human, and it ends there."
