Comment disregard of traffic regulations (Score 1) 490

I intuited many years ago that traffic laws pertaining to vehicular traffic were downright dangerous for me as a cyclist - having worked as a bike courier in Washington DC, I found that the safest strategies for operating a bicycle in the urban environment are not real popular with motorists, law enforcement, or pedestrians for that matter. I decided too bad for them - as a cyclist the cards were stacked against me already on the safety front - I adopted my own set of rules, which worked very well for me and never hurt anyone else. Stopping at stop signs and redlights was certainly NOT part of the repertoire and as much as this infuriated others I was able to live with that.
