A NEAR MISS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA


7th and Montana is turning into a real hub for bicyclists. It used to be you'd see them mainly on the weekends but lately I've noticed that more folks have been racing around in their Lycra bodysuits during the workweek, too. Today I was nearly mowed down by one (pictured above, to the left) as I was walking down 7th Street. I was crossing at an intersection ... and the cyclist barrelled through a stop sign without so much as slowing down. Seriously, aren't bike riders supposed to obey the rules of the road, too ...?

Marty- The key word is "suppose" to, but a majority of bicylist feel that they own the rode & are just as rude a people driving a car.

Yes they should obey the rules and if they don't they are asking to get killed.
