    This is just going to turn into a complete shit show if it's implemented, most people out there are completely incapable of gauging distances of any length.
    Cars already freak out about what to do when they encounter a bicycle on the road, this is just going to to make things worse. Then you just know entitled assholes on bicycles are gonna freak out on people if they think they didn't get their required 1 meter (but only when it's convenient to them). Maybe this could work if people weren't blind idiots, but if that were the case then we wouldn't be here having this discussion.

    So when someone swings their door open and hits your car as you pass them it's your fault? I guess it will be legal to door a cyclist if they're too close to parked cars.

    exactly what I came in here to ask.

    So the next time I'm sitting in traffic on crow child and in my rearview I see some jerk-off on a crotch rocket riding the dotted line weaving in between vehicles... At this point he is violating that rule literally every tenth of a second he passes a vehicle on the left and a vehicle on the right.

    I think we should be allowed to kick our doors open and stop this bullshit.

    This is one big reason why this is a horrible idea, because it will only further embolden people like this to do stupid things.

    Motorcycles filtering on roads like that is mutually beneficial. They get where they're going faster, and are also taking up that much less space in the traffic jam.

    Regardless, if you're the one that throws a door open into them, you're definitely the jerk off in that exchange.

    It's generally faster for everyone if every vehicles stops stopping at stop signs as well.

    Haha you guys are impossible. Filtering does actually work elsewhere in the world, even if it might not work here since our drivers all seem to have the "me first" attitude.

    IMO filtering is like traffic circles. It's definitely the better system, Canadian drivers are just too shitty to wrap their heads around effectively adopting it.

    Should apply to any vehicle that can fit through the gap. Bicycles, motorbikes, smart cars, whatever. No need to arbitrarily apply rules to one vehicle type and not another.

    Plus every stop sign should be replaced with a yield.

    Since this is a thread about bicycles I absolutely would never support encouraging cyclists to filter. Filtering only makes sense if the person filtering to the front doesn’t hold up the entire line of traffic behind them.

    As a commuter cyclist I refuse to filter and have been yelled at for blocking the curb lane with my bike so other cyclists couldn’t pass at the light haha!


    As for motorbikes I’m not opposed to them filtering but only if any accident that involves a motorbike filtering is deemed 100% the filtering bikes fault regardless. Speed differential is what kills, whipping up on someone doing 30kph less than you isn’t intelligent.

    Well it's not arbitrary. Can't tell if you're trolling me or not haha. The difference is when a motorcycle filters through, you'll never see him again. When a bike filters through, he's going to be an obstacle holding up traffic again within seconds.

    I actually completely agree with getting rid of every stop sign. Should be a yield sign.

    More importantly, every intersection should have rules for sightlines, that's the most dangerous part. Some rural roads even with stop signs, you basically can't see if anyone is coming until you are into the road.

    Actually, this is my job now. Rage2 pays me to rile people up for a month, and then the next month, he pays me nearly as much to spread positive vibes. I may never have a "real" job again, this is surprisingly lucrative.
