What's that? Uber isn't actually worth $82bn? Reverse-gear IPO shows the gig (economy) is up


Traffic laws != red lights.

"a new study from the Danish Road Directorate found that less than 5 per cent of cyclists break traffic laws compared to 66 per cent of motorists"

It may well be that cars in general break more traffic laws than cyclists, but in the specific case of red lights, cyclists win hands down. Literally every day on my drive to work in South London I see at least 10 cyclists go through red lights deliberately - mostly at major junctions. On more than one occasion I've seen that many go through a single set all together whilst I'm sitting there waiting. There really does seem to be weird sense of entitlement amongst them that red lights just don't apply to them*

I've never seen a car do the same (I'm sure it happens - I've just not seen it).

*I'm sure all commentard-cyclists here are fully law-abiding and would not even dream of it.
