Re "Davis goes off course" (Letters, Oct. 17): Drivers in Davis know that the level of aptitude displayed by the majority of bicyclists borders on the moronic. Examples commonly witnessed: Not stopping at stop signs, no looking left or right, and no hand signals.
If these bicyclists were riding in another town, many would surely be injured or worse. Ironically, these idiots have made drivers in Davis better.
It would be interesting to see how many actual tickets the city gives out. What scares me most is that they have no respect for authority or their own safety. I now look at the signs that show a bicycle rider with the phrase "Share the Road" in a different light.
