Cyclist down...

I decided to run to the store and since i have my old 440 back I took it. Sitting at the front of the line at the stop light to make a left turn and the arrow came on so I started to go. Out of nowhere some moron on a bicycle slammed into me from the right. I didnt see him over the other cars and at first I thought it was my fault but when I looked at the Xwalk it said DO NOT CROSS in plain orange letters. Wasnt blinking like it had just come on it was solid. Guy yelled at me to watch where I was going then got up and rode off. I was thinking "wtf... why dont you pay attention to the signs". That was the end of it but I do have a nice sized bruise on my leg now. Idiot cyclist.

Seems they think traffic rules dont apply to them.

They have "selective enforcement" of the rules they want to obey.

This seems to be the view of some bicyclists as they ride.--->

ya, the rode riders around here never follow stoplights, yet they demand to share the rode ...in my opinion you can't have one without the other for the exact reason you said.

That a$$ ran the light. He could have hurt you and your bike. Then you would have had to chase him down.
