Rick, I don't fully understand what type of incident you are referring to. However, there is definitely a problem right now with cyclist behaviour being inconsistent. Some obey every law while others obey only some, and a small minority seem to be completely ignorant to the fact that laws even exist.

If the laws are changed so that the cyclist's legal action becomes clear -- and if the laws are written in a way that encourages cyclists to obey them (i.e. if they are written with cyclists' needs taken into account to the same degree that motorists' needs are under the current system) -- then most cyclists will follow the new laws.

The end result of this is that motorists will be able to better predict how the majority of cyclists will act in a given situation, and the element of surprise will be reduced.
