"If you can cause damage to someone or something"

That's why I wrote "What if a pedestrian recklessly steps out on to the street and a car has to swerve and hits another car?"

As seancb keeps pointing out, bikes have a severely limited ability to cause damage to others, like pedestrians and UNLIKE cars. You can come up with one-offs about a bike hurting someone, but they're a rare exception.

crtsvg reveals himself as a typical bike hating motorist when he writes "If you are scared to ride your bike on the road stay off the road."

I'm all for cyclists learning how to ride properly since it makes my job as a cyclist easier but this idea of having mandatory testing and licencing and insuring for cyclists is absurd. All that business comes with cars because CARS ARE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS in the hands of an incompetent. Bikes aren't in the same category at all.
