Today I saw a cyclist riding down the right handed side of the one way street (not a good idea unless you LIKE getting doored). Some dumbass pedestrian steps out from behind a big truck to jay-walk while the traffic is mostly stopped. The cyclist misses him by mere inches, thankfully the pedestrian jumped back almost immediately. What happened to look both ways?!?!
Why is it that cyclists just throw their bikes where they want, so you have climb over it, seriously sometimes you can't exit a train station, without climbing over 50 bikes.
Copenhagen has more km bike paths than any city in the world or some shit like that, even though I was almost hit by two cyclists on the same stretch of side walk two days in a row, there's a reason why we have side walks, bike paths and roads separately.
90% of all cyclists have never driven a car and have next no knowledge of basic road traffic laws, so they believe they can do what ever they want, driving against the traffic on a one way street, go through red lights, drive on side walk, park their shit leaning on cars, cycle while, texting, eating, listening to music all at the same time, they apparently can't read signs that say NO CYCLING in public parks, right of way, indicating etc. etc. etc. I just want to slap them and throw their bikes in to the harbour.
If drivers did shit like that they would get arrested with in 5 minutes.
The four things that pisses me of the most in traffic is.

- Mothers with their trolleys
- People who stop for no apparent reason, right in the middle of everything
- People who don't keep right on the motorways etc.
