It does work to have different sets of rules for different road users. We already do it.

The police are the ones who single out specific road users with their cyclist and pedestrian crackdowns, not me.

I'm all for equal enforcement for all.

Would you have a problem if you got caught and ticketed for going 55 in a 50 zone? Who decides which rules are bendable and which aren't?

Your comment is mostly filled with responses to points I did not make.

Regarding your last sentence, I did not say that drivers are more likely to break the law. But my underlying point is that breaking a law in a car is inherently more dangerous to others than breaking a law on foot.

Why does it not make sense to prioritize enforcement accordingly? If a murderer runs down a street in one direction and a graffiti vandal runs the other, which should the cop chase?
