Object or People?

Another thing that is not considered, is that cyclists are seen as individuals whereas cars are seen as objects. This is where all the one-sided attitude comes from.

If an individual breaks the rules, it's noticed by all. If an object breaks the rules, everyone accepts it.

Don't make the mistake of thinking "objects" don't break the rules, because it is actually rife!!!

You're joking right? I have a well-paid job, and play a big part in society, so don't tell me I am not a person!

It was meant figuratively!

It does seem that if you make eye contact with others, they do seem to recognize your existence more.

So this object vs. person may have some truth to it!
