There's a reason why they don't follow directions. They're wacked.

This is the reason why I give sidewalk bicycles a wide berth.


Some driver made him do it. Wonder do the new bail laws don’t apply to the evil fascist drivers? City going down the toilet.

Dont blame the cyclists, motor vehicles are evil

A cyclist driving over the walkway instead of the lines, what a surprise!
