Bicyclists running stop signs
Original post made by Ventura Resident on Jul 16, 2008
With more cyclists on the road however, I have seen more and more cyclists taking risks on the road such as running stop signs and almost hitting pedestrians, while speeding through neighborhoods. I have noticed this frequently along Park Blvd (between the Mercedes Benz Service Center and Fernando Avenue).
As a cyclist myself, I strongly believe that cyclists have a right to share the road with motorists. But I also believe that the cyclists should at least observe basic traffic laws.
I understand that a full 3 second one-foot-on-the-ground bicycle stop at a stop light/sign would cramp the cyclists momentum but for the safety of the community as well as themselves is so important.
