    Kinda fucked up that some poor bastard had to actually die for them to lay a single charge against a cyclist ever.

    More talk about the so-called "Idaho stop". https://calgaryherald.com/news/local...-on-stop-signs

    I identify as an Idahoan, and as such I object to this offensive cultural appropriation.

    One can only hope if the max penalty of killing someone is only 6 months.

    If you fail to yield, it's illegal, even with Idaho stop legislation.

    Default Head's up, new rules for drivers with respect to cyclists

    Head's up, new rules for drivers with respect to cyclists starting September 1, 2019.. Basically, distance separation to a cyclist when a driver is passing them on a roadway, link...

    Good, bad, I just do not know but certainly sounds like something that could possibly incite a few more road rage incidents.

    So more rules that people will ignore and the police wont enforce.

    I do however see a lot of cyclists trying to make complaints until they realize that it would never hold up.

    If the cyclist is riding with a camera/go pro. Could that hold up..?

    The problem is that filtering is going to be a massive problem downtown now. This would've been better if there was a rule against filtering that's actually enforced. There rarely enough room to pass, and when you do, the bike filters back up to the front, and you're done. This is going to be bad for road rage. Add to the fact if you honk at a cyclist and they just move far enough away from the curb so you can't pass? Cue the fireworks.

    Speaking of complaints that will never hold up.

    The day I see cyclists obeying the rules of the road is the day I will be sympathetic towards them complaining about cars.

    This.

    Such a tiny percentage of cyclists are courteous, let alone obey the rules, that it's pointless to even try. Same old story - they are a 'vehicle' when convenient, and a 'pedestrian' when convenient. The filtering is the absolute worst though, because it isn't convenient for them to be a 'vehicle' if they are behind anyone.

    License plates, registration, and mandatory liability insurance to drive on the road.

    Would be amazing how much cyclists would be forced to clean up their acts if people could actually identify them and report their bullshit.

    I say the same thing about drivers complaining about cyclists.

    Having started biking to work, other cyclists are the main problem.
