But in all seriousness. I originally came to post about this article about stop signs.

"It is ridiculous to complain about bikes going through stop signs when the system was designed to control cars. Fix it so that it works for both, saving fuel for drivers and ending this whine that bikes don't obey the rules when the rules were not written for bikes.

The road system was not designed for cars; it predates them. But it has been modified to adapt to and control cars at the expense of all other modes of transportation. If anyone in City Hall gave a moment's thought to the needs of cyclists, they would look for other means of traffic control than a stop sign every 266 feet. But they don't, and then people wonder why cyclists don't stop for the signs."
