How serious is it for a person on bike to break the law…?

… compared to a person in a car?

It’s true, some cyclists break the law. Most don’t. (Just as motorists do, but much, much, much safer for the people around them.) Me, I do my absolute best not to break the law; it only gives ammunition to the noisy minority of petrolhead bicycle-haters.

Yet a happy realisation crept up on me today and patted me on the back:

Now the warmer weather is coaxing every man, woman and child out on their bikes, the bicycle-haters are – to all appearances – retreating into defeated hibernation. Any anti-bike comments at this time of year are going to meet a much noisier backlash.
