I wish the cops would teach parents as well. The other day, I saw one driver blasting his horn at a couple of kids bicycling in front of him. They were riding safely and legally, just too slow for his BMW.

I also agree that the schools should make it family bike rodeo day. I see a lot of parents teaching kids really bad habits, such as riding on the wrong side of the street and not stopping at stop signs. Parents should also ride behind their kids to keep an eye on them, rather than in front. Most ride in front and have no idea what their kids are doing behind them, sometimes it is silly behavior and the kids do not realize that they are riding dangerously.

Impeding traffic is illegal. From what you say, the BMW driver was justified.
