It would be wonderful if you could be outraged with the same energy at the 33,000 fatalities, 3.9 million injuries and 24 million damaged vehicles, for a total cost of $871 billion, that motor vehicle drivers cause every year in this country alone. So much for the effectiveness of licensing and minimum age, not to mention that private individual insurance only covers a small fraction of the total cost, most of it is left to the tax payer to foot the bill (bicyclists included). Please, leave bicycles out of that mess, it 's already difficult enough to have to weave a path through that jungle. Just saying.

I don't really agree. In this case the cyclist was riding the wrong way. Other drivers should not be expected to look 360° for people violating the most basic rules of the road.

My point was that laws, in general, are supposed to be there to protect people from harm done by others. The risk that cyclists pose to others is minuscule and does not warrant the government expansion (and expense -- nobody seems to think of the tax increases) that these proposals would entail.
