Dangerous Cyclists

A collective of motorists from Colorado, US, in summer 2008 launched a call for civil disobedience against the extension of bicyclist’s rights and the state’s new law – about a minimum distance to keep between cars and cyclists while passing them. They distributed an amazing flyer explaining that “cyclist flout common sense, endanger those in cars on mountain roads in the name of selfishness; cars will be forced to cross double yellow lines on dangerous limited visibility roads due to the expanded rights of cyclists. ”The text is asking for civil disobedience, in order to fight these dead machines that threaten peaceful drivers – bicycles. It calls all people “who have been endangered by cyclist behaviour” to protest against this new law.

    It’s 2010. I suppose you want to revive the drivers’ interest in this?

    Motorists suffer from brain damage. This is because of all the fumes they breath in while living in metal boxes. This brain damage makes them Violent and mentally ill.

    I have live in Minneapolis where people live in cars because they are programmed to do so, and they are much more violent and show clear signs of mentall illness.

    No one hates motorized metal boxes as much as me and even though I truly understand what post peak oil means, I really hope it has come and oil will be come very expensive and harder to come by..

    It is a pity that many uses excuses blaming the other road users for being dangerous.

    When reality is it is not just one group who is dangerous as all road users are dangerous be it riders (cyclists and motorbike), drivers, and pedestrians.

    In other words, don’t be weak and accept that it is the road users group you are in where there are dangerous road users.
