Beverly Hills P.D. to pedestrians and bikers - "GTFO!"

...and good for them. Bicyclists are a menace to society, and pedestrians think traffic signals are mere suggestions. I got news - cars aren't as easy to stop as feet, and bikes have no business on the street if they can't observe the "Basic Speed Rule" we were all taught in driver's ed.

Of course, the driver may have had to slow down and what's the real value of human life if you're in a hurry?

You know. On reflection I've decided that I really don't give a fuck if everybody who rides a bike or walks in Beverly Hills gets killed.

I stand firmly with QBNCGAR on this one.

Having lived in San Francisco over 25 years, I have suffered the indignities of arrogant, self righteous pricks (and cunts) riding around as if no traffic laws apply to them.

I have been mowed down and hurt by them careening along the sidewalk, seen them sailing through red lights, kicking the doors of motorists who looked at them sideways, and treated non cyclists and traffic laws with disdain and contempt.

And never mind "Critical Mass" Fridays, where they completely take over the streets en mass, violating every traffic law they can think of, safe n their numbers while the SFPD officers just watch and collect overtime pay.

God help any mother in a minivan who gets caught in it. The car will get trashed, bicycles flung at it, windows busted, children inside terrorized.

Dirty, criminal, drug-crazed, testosterone fueled motherfuckers.

And let's not even get started with the bike messengers.

Just like the tone of the arrogant SOB profiled in the BH article. What a fucking a$$hole.

Another candidate for a Darwin award. Some of them have been outright killed when they darted in front of Muni buses and garbage trucks. Cry me a fucking river.

Good for the BHPD

Yes. It's imperitive that every good American motorist kill every cyclist they can.
