NY Times article "The Wild Bunch"

One of the most frequent complaints we hear about cyclists is their general disregard for traffic laws. As cyclists on the road, we have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. Unfortunately many cyclists feel the rules only apply to motorists.

There's a good article in the Sunday NY Times on cyclist behavior in the city, The Wild Bunch. The basic premise of the article is that now that the city is listening to cyclists' needs and providing good bike facilities, cyclists need to start acting responsibly, like stopping at red lights and obeying other rules of the road. The author offers some modest proposals: 1. Stop at major intersections, 2. Ride with traffic on one-way streets, 3. Stay off sidewalks, and 4. Signal.
