Cyclists need to toe the line!

A heart-rending appeal on behalf of motorists, from British Columbia:

What about the safety of the driver?

Should he slow down and crawl along for blocks until the cyclist decides to make a left or right turn?

It appears, at times, that motorists are at the mercy of the cyclist.

Just the other day, I was crawling behind what appeared to be a mother in tow. I'm sure you've seen the bicycle enthusiast pulling a trailer. If you look close enough you'll see tiny tots in the back of these flimsy danger mobiles.

What is with these people? Can't parents leave their children in the care of friends or loved ones while they pedal through dangerous traffic?
