Bicycle menace

April 12, 2011

I agree with Ron Wirsing's April 6 letter that bicyclists should be licensed.

A day does not pass that I do not witness a bicyclist violate the 3-foot law by weaving through stopped traffic at an intersection, then run a red light or fail to even slow down, much less stop, at a stop sign.

I have seen bicyclists ignore a school bus with flashing red lights and breeze by the flagman on a road crew. I have seen bicyclists riding at night with no headlights or taillights.

Mr. Wirsing is right: The only solution is to require licensing and a safety course.
