I gave up conventional cycling and ride an E-Bike due to a permanent leg injury that attempting to ride a conventional bike made worse.
I ride to work (about 20 miles or 30 km) I see lots of bad cyclists and bad drivers who violate the rules of the road constantly. E-Bike riders and surprisingly motorcycle drivers around here are *better* which is not to say perfect at best as a group they are *good*. I admit I sometimes make errors. I also get harassed by drivers telling me to "get on the sidewalk where I belong", by pedestrians telling me I'm not allowed on the bike path/lane or "shared use" paths (bikes, pedestrians, skaters and skateboarders etc) in spite of the law saying I'm to ride where conventional bikes do. Some if you talk to them and explain the actual law will acknowledge their error others won't even talk just yell and harass and deny anything you say - even when they are in fact riding their bike illegally with not lights for example. A few have complimented me on the care I take not to endanger other path users no matter how stupidly they behave.
I've been stopped by police 4 times. 1/ What are you riding, 2/ missed a stop sign that I couldn't see due to overhanging branches that blocked my view from near the curb. A driver who is nearer the center line could see it. Wasn't ticketed and now I watch across the road to see the back of stop signs facing the other way. 3/ My route took me on a path where there was a road block due to a fatal accident and I wasn't allowed through leaving me 3 choices, wait till the investigation ended (hours) go over a bridge with much faster traffic or go the wrong way on a one way street (no sidewalk to walk the bike on and in front of the cop) and 4/ The cop has a personal policy against E-Bikes on bike lanes. Yeah he was making up his own laws and got threatening when I asked about the law being changed and cited the actual law which I HAVE read. Only once had I made an actual error and that was because the sign was not visible from the curb where I am supposed to ride. As a conventional cyclist I was stopped once for my headlight not working. Since I was actually on a private parking lot not a street and the cop didn't see me on a street I don't know if he could have ticketed me or not legally. He accepted me partially true answer about the batteries dying, they had died the prior night and were in fact fully charged in the charger at home where I had forgotten them along with the topped up spared I'd finished that ride with so "It was true from a certain point of view" :) .
