[QUOTE=Drifter]It seems to have become popular to "slag off" cyclists for disobeying traffic signs, traffic lights etc. What motorists (and yes, I am a motorist) tend to forget is that traffic lights, signs etc. are only necessary to control motor vehicles.

Adds more weight to cyclist made to tow the line in paying to be on the road and have appropriate insurance like any other driver & vehicle has to. As said, at 30 mph, they are more that what it was years ago ambling along on a sedate push bike.
