As a cyclist, I do agree that in Hamilton, far too much attention is paid to the ‘rights’ of the motorist and far too little to those of the cyclist. It is almost as if the car exists as a birthright, and the bicycle as a privilege. That being said, I do feel that many cyclists take an excess of risks, for example, riding Main Street at rush hour, something I would never consider doing.

While it may be unpalatable to have to yield to the car, it is a fact that there are almost always alternatives to busy thoroughfares. Of course, that will lengthen the time for your commute, but surely safety must be one’s top priority.
