And most motorists do not stop at stop signs. Try hanging around a stop sign for a while and watch.

You and I both bike through West Hamilton pretty much every day. Is it really your impression that drivers and cyclists run stop signs in proportional numbers? I feel certain that I see cyclists do it more often and more flagrantly both in relative and absolute numbers - though, yes, with far less potential danger to others.

More specifically and significantly, how often do you see drivers just blow through a four-way when other people are waiting? I see it on Sterling alone at least once a week, sometimes more than once a day.

Not to give to much credence to the person to whom you are responding, but we're not going to win people over by contradicting these sort of plainly visible breaches of law and etiquette.

That said, I'm seeing the proportion of scoff-law cyclists go down as more and more people take to utility cycling and cycle like grown-ups (signalling; stopping; waiting their turn).
