The truth about cyclists breaking the rules

Fact 1: Cyclists DO NOT jump red lights
Fact 2: Cyclists DO NOT ride on pavements
Fact 3: Cyclists DO NOT ride the wrong way down a one-way street

It is individual(s) that break the rules NOT CYCLISTS. Some of them just choose cycling as their form of transport.
The same individuals have an attitude problem that will manifest itself as SPEED, TAILGATING and NOT INDICATING while behind the wheel of a 1.5 ton car of which are THOUSANDS of times more likely to kill someone as opposed to a cyclist weighing about 100kg who cannot do any of these things mentioned above!

My point is, it's time to stop blaming CYCLISTS collectively. (i.e. For those that don't get it, CYCLISTS meaning plural as opposed to A PERSON ON A BICYCLE meaning singular!)
