It's about respect

I'll admit sometimes cyclists don't do themselves favours when it comes to earning the respect of other motorists but that doesn't justify blanket hatred of one of the most vulnerable groups of road users.

Do cyclists run red lights? Yes, but this cyclist doesn't.

Do cyclists ride on the pavements? Yes, but this cyclist doesn't.

Do cyclists use up the whole road? Yes, but sometimes it's because they can see there's not even enough room to attempt to pass.

Do cyclist vandalise Wikipedia pages of TV chief's who have upset them? Yes, unfortunately like the general population, some cyclists are Twats.

This sort of opinion re-inforces the dangerous "Us vs them" mentality of cyclists and motorists. And when it comes to a head it's the cyclist that normally comes out worse.
