There Oughta Be a Lot of Laws. Well, There Are.

December 17, 2010

Read this editorial in today’s New York Times, and ask yourself one thing: only 1% of New Yorkers commute to work by taxi, yet when was the last time the Grey Lady ran an editorial asking for better enforcement and ticketing of cab drivers?

I’m not saying that I endorse or even excuse bad behavior by cyclists.  The law is the law and I wish more cyclists would observe it.  But based on the amount of ink spilled and pixels generated by the Times, you’d think bicycles were a far larger menace than they actually are.  Car drivers run over one million red lights every day.  So where’s the pedantic editorial explaining the law to drivers?
