Pay attention, cyclists

Updated 10/8/2021 9:52 AM

It amazes me the number of people on bicycles doing the monkey- see-monkey-do thing. Others are running stop signs rather than coming to a stop. Had Helmet Jahn been in his motor vehicle when he lost his life months ago, he would have automatically stopped, avoiding a possible awareness mistake. The great architect would have remained alive. Cyclists need to form that habit, to give life expectancy a better chance.

I haven't seen motorcycle riders ignore stop signs. Most recreational cyclists are out there for exercise anyway. What does it matter if effort is needed to start again?
