That's my very point! Current interest rates make the payoff for savings so low that discourages people from being responsible and encourages them to become indebted.

Seems nearly everyone of them feels they can peddle anywhere despite local laws. My city has sacrificed car lanes to make bike lines and bikers still ride the wrong way on one way streets, let alone to mention sidewalks.

Be subject to strip search just as everyone else is.
