I walked out of a Hawthorne bakery this morning and was almost run over - not by an evil car, truck or SUV, but by some idiot punk cyclist who was riding his bike full speed on the sidewalk. Did you catch that last part of the sentence? I said he was riding ON THE SIDEWALK! I almost clotheslined him. We did actually bump into each other, but he didn't fall off. I screamed at him to get off the sidewalk; he just kept on pedaling full speed.
This is not an isolated incident, people. I have lost count of all the cyclists I've seen who have blown through traffic lights, turned directly in front of oncoming cars, rode at night without lights,...and oh yes, rode on busy sidewalks.
Show a little courtesy. Show some common sense and safety before you do get clotheslined - or worse.
