Everybody’s doin’ it.
You know those motorists who complain that cyclists never obey traffic laws? You should read their whiny comments about “speed traps” and “quotas,” along with the requisite links to sites to help you break the law. Por ejample:
“They are indiscriminate in who they stop and stop people for the most trivial of reasons just for practice.“
“CHP cruiser that sits on 19Th Ave and East Cliff at the four-way stop waiting for someone to fail to come to a complete stop, at an intersection where there has never been a serious accident. Or the CHP Officer that sits in the driveway of private property on the corner of Sims Rd and La Madrona at another non-dangerous three way stop. Or the one that sits at Paul Minnie and Rodriguez St yet another low priority three way stop.” [ -- Personal note: I saw a really nasty injury collision at Sims & La Madrona just last weekend when somebody failed to stop at this "non-dangerous three way stop" which is actually a two way stop. ]
I don’t understand why the American Automobile Association doesn’t control these maniacs. They make all motorists look bad, especially since they stop at stop signs only 22% of the time. If they can’t respect the rules of the road, I can’t respect their right to be on the road.
