Cyclist riding without bike lights set nor helmet,
fails to Give Way to Pedestrian at Zebra Crossing.
Cyclist approaches crossing in the dark from Pedestrian's right side
Watch out for the Cyclists!
This You Tube clip is from overseas,
however a similar incident occurred to me recently
on a Tram Stop Zebra Crossing in the Melbourne CBD
except the female cyclist was going much faster
and also seemed to be totally unaware
that she was morally and legally required to Give Way to the most vulnerable road user
a Pedestrian on a Zebra Crossing.
Unfortunately Cycling has been promoted as a morally superior activity.
It is not.
Those with feelings of moral superiority believe the rules do not apply to them
and the promotion of cycling participation has erroneously tapped into this mindset.
It should not
Cycling is not more important than Walking
Cyclists are not more important than any other Road Users.
The Road Rules apply to Cyclists too.
