Lawrence, you know as well as I do that the unrwitten undercurrent to any debate on here re: transportation, is that cars are bad and RTHers are wonderful because they ride bikes. I think that the underlying poing of MBs comment, which I understand to be "people might be more responsive to cycle friendly policy, if they didn't just nearly wing some clown who blew through an intersection on his bike", is a worthwhile contribution to the discussion. If you want to get pissy at the heaps of BS spewed by all of the Joshes and Meghans on this site as well, then I'll give you a modicum of respect. If you'll do as other RTHers do and single out people who disagree with them for criticism regarding their posts, then forget it.

Here's where your wrong. Cars are not bad by definition, it's just bad that they are effectively the only recognized and accepted form of transportation. Public transit is grudgingly accepted, bikes are frowned upon and pedestrians are simply in the way when it comes to setting transit priorities in this city.

I'm almost exclusively a car driver yet I'd love to see bikes and public transit made a priority.
