I Am Having A Beef With Bicycle Riders

Posted on

I Am Having A Beef With Bicycle Riders that do NOT observer traffic rules and laws, as well mandatory bicycle equipment regulations.

Why don’t bicycle riders don’t stop on STOP Signs. To the best of my knowledge this is illegal, since they are participating in regular street traffic and a bicycle is a vehicle and there for all laws and regulations are to be observed like by other vehicles.

What bugs me even more is bicycles running STOP signs in the middle in the night and not having any front or rear lights. The bike rider most likely even dressed in dark cloth riding on a sparely lighted road, making it as good as impossible to be seen in a timely and secure manner. More than once I almost ran over one or the other because they appeared out of nothing right next to or in front of my car like out of nothing.

Since it is almost impossible to talk to these guys or get them to change their behavior I was thinking already about filing a complaint with the local police office against the bicycle riders in general and against the police for not fulfilling their duty to assure safe traffic.

Does an accident have to happen first in which somebody gets severely hurt or even killed. If this happens I am sure the media finds a way to make it the car drivers fault.

Basic Rules for every bicycle rider:

Wear reflective clothing!

Have working lights at the front and the rear of the bicycle!

Maybe even have some reflectors in your spokes!

Embracing Imperfection

“When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. In addition, I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I do not remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said: ‘Baby, I love burned toast.’

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if He really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, ‘Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!’ You know, life is full of imperfect things…and imperfect people. I am not the best housekeeper or cook.

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each other’s faults – and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences – is the one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that’s my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of GOD. Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where burnt toast isn’t a deal-breaker! We could extend this to any relationship in fact – as understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!! ”
