Cycler busted for manslaughter (good read for those of us who live in the city)
I hate to get political (to the mods) but i want to see the opinion of other New Yorkers on this subject.
It's about time cyclists got charged for something. I know this is San Francisco, but this is a minute away from coming to NY. I can't count the number of times I've had the right away and almost gotten hit by a cyclist running a red light screaming crap at me and threatening to hit me. They are required to follow the same rules as cars, but are never held accountable. Maybe this will give cyclers incentive to actually follow the rules and not be such tools.
For example, if a cycler runs a red and gets hit, they are responsible for any and all damage, though, but cyclists don't care about the rules of the road.
