The Police Read My Blog

Wow - just a couple of weeks ago I was wishing that more cyclists would brush up on the "Rules of the Road" - and while I was in Florida they started ticketing Lakeview residents. Awesome.

Now, on chicagoist and other Chicago blogs, and even in the editorial section of the Trib, you will see cyclists saying that they are the SOLUTION, cars are the problem, and cars do this, and cars do that, and waah waah waah.

Being in favor of making cyclists follow rules is not condoning drivers not following the rules. Don't you jerks get it? EVERYONE should follow the rules. It's what makes this a frickin' society.

As a driver, I love the bike lanes painted on Damen Ave. - it clearly defines my dancing space and your dancing space. I won't go on your turf, please don't go on mine and weave and be all crazy. Otherwise I will just assume you are on a bike due to getting a DUI.

Let's all be safe, kids! And, since the cops are obviously taking their cues from this blog - how about stopping property owners from growing tall grass on the corners? It completely obstructs visibility at intersections. How about saying you can't have foliage higher than 3 feet in a corner grass area? Please and thank you!
