Serendipity: I absolutely did not say that it is not illegal for motorists to exceed the speed limit.

I would say that riding the sidewalks (where someone on foot might be trying to start his or her walk from a driveway, or just generally trying to use the only space available to a person walking) and then "immediately" moving into the path of motor traffic, is dangerous for everybody.

I agree with you that many roads are dangerous places for cyclists for reasons that should be addressed. I do not agree that it is OK for a cyclist to unilaterally overcome those dangers by inconveniencing and endangering others. It's also a bit frustrating that pointing out the incorrect actions of some motorists is "understanding," but pointing out the incorrection actions of some bicyclists is somehow "spewing and spouting."
