  •  Unfortunately, following the law doesn't always (6+ / 0-)

    ...work every well, since motorists seldom respect the cyclist's right of way.  I mean, how many right-turning douchebags do I have to wait for at that 4-way stop, before it's OK  for me to "veer around"?  At some point, a commuter has to take matters into his own hands.

    Best solution, IMO: change the motorist's assumption of impunity by deploying a massive number of unmarked police bicycles.  And sure, once the underlying problem is resolved, any residual scofflaws should be ticketed/prosecuted/taken off the road.
