Re “Cyclists don’t obey traffic laws” (Letters, Sept. 25): Yes, it would be nice if all bicyclists would obey traffic signs and signals. It would also be nice if they were made to get an education on the rules of the road, as every motorist has to do. Granted, they don’t have a motor on the bike, but they should know all of the rules in case of a mishap with a car so they can’t plead “I didn’t know.” Motorists can’t get away with that excuse.
Let all adult bicyclists have a license, plus the yearly fees drivers have. Why should all drivers of city and county roads pay an extra fee to improve the road for bicyclists to have more bike paths and bike lanes?
I am sure another law is coming for us to vote on. I can’t afford that extra fee each year. Can you?
