Ummm, ya.

The only reason for the "license" for cyclists is for education. The people you know who cycle regularly would generally know the rules. The recreational cyclist rarely does.

A sliding scale would also be useless at least with respect to big rigs. Most of the accidents even those involving big rigs are caused by motorists in much smaller vehicles. Also, how many accidents happen on city streets as a result of big rigs?

And by the way, I never said that rules regarding car drivers shouldn't be enforced, in fact, I'm all for it. I hate seeing police in their "regular" spots doing radar "traps" when everyone knows where they are to.

Now, you're proposing rule changes and new signs which of course is going to cost money. If what you're saying is true, then why do we need to...most cyclists are following those rules already.

Also, by sheer volume and size it would make sense that the "safest users" are cyclists. I'm not proposing more rules, I'm saying education on the existing rules is necessary. I don't care how it's done, EVERYONE using the road needs better education.
