17757Re: [CF] JimmyTheSaint's attacks on me
- Dec 11, 2006Your Triad reallly is a list of common sense road behaviour. I don't think any cyclist 'hates' it. Its just the car drivers don't appear to have read it, or the highway Code and many speed, pass too close, don't indicate etc etc
If everyone did drive/cycle by the highway code and obeyed the law tnen the roads would be safer.
But you do refer to it as if a. everyone has read it, and b. if only they'd read it they'd all obey it.
people just don't obey rules or act with common sense.
There was some survery last week in the UK of drivers and the majority admitted to speeeding, driving without due care, using a cell phone while driving (against the law here) and 1 in 20 owned up to driving while drunk. They all know the rules, they just don't obey any of them.

Code of Conduct Regarding Bicycles" into "Section I of the Triad".
