Re "Drivers endanger cyclists by not following traffic rules" (Letters, Sept. 5): As a professional driver for one of the biggest hospital and university systems in California, I believe that this bicyclist has his head in other places. On my many travels around Sacramento and Davis, the bike capital of the world, he should again look at California's rules of the road.
First, bikes are not pedestrians; they are wheeled vehicles and must follow the same rules as a car or motorcycle -- slower traffic keeps to the right, stopping at stop signs, signalling when turning, etc. Yes, laws of physics do apply so why do bikes continue to run red lights in front of us or the big transit buses? Just remember, on a bike, traffic rules apply.
