So I had finished my Sunday morning bike ride, sitting at Starbucks having my after ride coffee, and cruising the dope on my smart phone. I come across this thread.
Now I ride bikes, and because of this I am predisposed when I hear about a car vs bicycle accident to lean toward the car driver was in the wrong. However as this thread unfolded it became clear that our guest of honor Sir T-Cups has to be the largest douchebag that has ever ridden on two wheels.
Let’s see from memory here
[li]doesn’t know the law governing bicycles in his state[/li][li]considers himself to be a pedestrian when he is controling a vehicle[/li][li]Thinks the other driver should buy him a new bike, even though he was in the wrong[/li][li]Considers all of the laws governing bicycles to be a technicality.[/li][li]Wanted to get a bike shop employee to lie for him to get a new bike (and then intended to not buy the bike at the bike shop, but at Target or Walmart[/li][/ul]
A few of the absolutly classic quotes from STC
Fine print? fine print, you were wrong jackhole.
Does this quote surprise anyone? Should be titled Ethics (lack of) in modern society.
Or this lovely quote
Got news for you sparky, your second sentence pretty much proves your first sentence is wrong.
Then at last he admits he is not a pedestrian (sort of)
Love it he calls himself a motorist. Cyclist numb-nuts, cyclist. :rolleyes:
Now listen up jack-off. I ride a bike. I follow the vehicle code. I stop for lights and stop signs. I ride in the street where I belong. However every couple of weeks around here there is a thread where someone that drives a car paints all riders with the same broad brush: "Bikes never stop at stop signs, they ride on the sidewalk, they ride the wrong way etc, etc etc.
It’s assholes like you that are giving those car drivers that impression, and causing me and other law abiding riders to get splattered with shit from car drivers that belong squarely on your shoulders.
Do me and every other law abiding bike rider a favor, sell your bike and ride a scooter, or get a set of roller blades anything, just don’t ride a bike. This way when drivers get pissed at your stupid moves they won’t tar me with the same brush.
